Since its founding, KDO has kept an inclusive, holistic, and diverse understanding of community as one of its core values. We know that to best serve the children of Indianapolis through dance, we have to not only be an active member of the communities in which we have programming but a member that seeks to work alongside other community partners to help uplift their work and the communities they serve, even if they are not direct beneficiaries of KDO’s programming.  Over the past ten years, KDO has worked hard to live up to this vision and has cultivated many different community partners with sustainable, long-term relationships.

How to Get Involved:  If you have ideas on how KDO can best engage with the Indianapolis community, reach out to KDO’s Associate Director, Community Engagement & Programming, Dana Vanderburgh, at
