KDO Online Summer Program 2021

In-Person and Virtual Options

Join us for the KDO Summer Program 2021! KDO master teaching artists and professional musicians engage children in grades 3rd-5th in a dance class like no other. Now offering a two-week in-person session and a one-week virtual session. *No previous dance experience necessary. 

“What style of dance does KDO teach?”  KDO’s movement vocabulary is not based on one specific style but focuses on providing a high-energy, inspiring, and accessible dance class where all children can succeed! At times various themes and other curricular content can drive choreography that celebrates and is influenced by specific techniques – honoring diversity and culture while remaining accessible to all.

Children are expected to attend all classes through the session as we will be building upon the material learned each day.
