Kidz Danz Kompany presents its Spring Dance Concert titled “Ballet My Way” at the San Diego Performing Arts Center (4579 Mission Gorge Place, San Diego, CA, 92120) on May 5th-6th, 2017 @ 7pm.
Founding Artistic Director Spencer John Powell will premier two new works “In the Land of Qualities – A Ballet”, a fun new fairy tale inspired by “The Book of Qualities” by J. Ruth Gendler. This work will explore the Human Qualities within us all, such as Fear, Power, Charm and Joy, etc. The second work by the Artistic Director will be “My Mother’s Son”, a deeply moving work which will include all of the male dancers of KDK. Included in this work will be a very special appearance by the male dancers of Visionary Dance Theatre who will join them on stage for this beautiful work.
Additionally, Assistant Artistic Director Ramon Montes will present his last new work on KDK before leaving San Diego.
Finally, KDK will present a new work called Victory, choreographed by the dancers of KDK. This work will mix Hip Hop and Ballet. After studying Pointe work for the past 4 years, KDK dancers will be performing En Pointe for this work as well as “In the Land of Qualities”.
Kidz Danz Kompany, San Diego’s first and only childrens modern dance company, is a modern dance-based company that also explores all dance genres, with a strong theatre background. This distinguished, critically acclaimed children’s dance company was founded in 1994 by Spencer John Powell in Utah and now is hosted by Visionary School for the Performing Arts. “KDK reminds us that a child’s world doesn’t have to be sanitized and schmaltzy. Kids are smarter than we give them credit for and able to process more than we think.” – San Diego Theatre Reviews
Join us as we celebrate the world of Ballet in our own way. We break all the rules of ballet and still capture the brilliance of classical ballet. Come down and see as KDK mixes Ballet with Hip Hop, Modern, and just some plain old dancing-fun!
