Summer programs

KDO’s work does not stop when the school year ends! During the summer months, we engage with our dancers and the Indianapolis community in fun and innovative ways to ensure more children can experience the joy of KDO.

open summer program

Any child ages 8-11 can sign up for KDO’s Summer Program which runs for two weeks in June. This tuition-free program provides an opportunity for children in our community to experience what KDO is all about. Like all KDO programs, this summer camp uses unique teaching techniques and live music, to facilitate the success of students of every level. 

The goal of KDO’s summer program is to help children see that hard work, discipline, and collaboration can lead to extraordinary achievements. We strive to cultivate a summer experience that will create a lifetime of memories. No previous dance or KDO experience required!
