Through community partnerships around Indianapolis Kids Dance Outreach strives to share its high-level co-curricular and specialized dance programs with thousands each year. 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. Our programs involve structure and discipline, listening and following instruction skills, persistence, problem solving, cooperation, body awareness, creative expression and the essential importance of caring for each other. While dance is the vehicle, the goal is to provide these young lives with a strong sense of self and the necessary tool kit to face life with the strength to overcome obstacles. Our goal is to help kids discover “they can” and empower them for a lifetime.
