ABOUT KDO

Established in 2012 the mission of Kids Dance Outreach (KDO) is to positively impact the lives of all children through joyful dance programs that inspire excellence, instill confidence, encourage teamwork, and applaud persistence.

 Through community partnerships around Indianapolis KDO shares its high-level dance programs with thousands each year.

The Kids Dance Outreach programs are designed to inspire and introduce young elementary school children to the art of dance, while engaging them in a process that equips them with the discipline, confidence, social consciousness and cognitive skills for success.  The project is the vision of Michael J. Johnson, founder and Chief Executive Director, to bring high quality arts education and performance opportunities directly to the children of this community, thereby enhancing their sense of self-worth, academic achievement, social skills and ultimately, their quality of life.

PROGRAMS

Through KDO’s programs children are inspired by the joy of dance and music as they’re given something positive to focus on, specific goals to attain, a sense of meaningful accomplishment and an appreciation of the Arts.  KDO main programs are offered free of charge to all students, and begin through community partnerships. As an integral part of our programs and mission, KDO strives to provide quality performance opportunities for all students, in order to motivate and engage them toward excellence. If you are a parent, or school administrator and would like to have the program at your school, click to learn more and contact us!
