The Kids Dance Outreach Event of the Year is the culmination of the year-long learning that has taken place across all of KDO’s programs. Beyond the impact on children and their families, the Event of the Year serves as KDO’s biggest fundraiser of the year — it draws a diverse audience, including civic leaders, philanthropists, foundation leaders, families, and other constituencies.

KDO Event of the Year 2022, Dancin’ in the Streets – What a triumphant comeback! Two shows, audiences packed the Howard L. Schrott Center for the Arts to see almost a hundred of our dancers enthusiastically take the stage in a thrilling performance.
