Above & Beyond

Kids Dance Outreach

The mission of Kids Dance Outreach (KDO) is to positively impact the lives of all children through joyful dance programs that inspire excellence, instill confidence, encourage teamwork, and applaud persistence.
 
Using an innovative dance and arts education model and with a laser focus on dance outreach, KDO offers its programs to school-age children around Indianapolis. Programs include School Partnerships, Advanced Scholarship Programs, and Dancers with Disabilities. KDO is different from a dance school or studio – programs are FREE for every child. “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! All KDO classes are accompanied by professional musicians with live music.
