What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Inclusive Dance Outreach Program

Our Inclusive Dance Outreach program provides professional dance training for children with Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other specific needs. By blending classical ballet, jazz and contemporary movements, our outreach program is an inclusive and engaging way for participants to explore the art of dance in the comfort and convenience of their school. Dance increases flexibility, agility, coordination and spacial awareness and develops expressive, musical, motor and auditory skills. Our hope is to not only instill an immediate sense of joy and artistic expression, but to ignite an ongoing interest and a desire for continued participation in dance or other creative/ performing arts and to encourage a more arts enriched lifestyle. Participants enjoy a series of 6 or more dance classes led by Artistic Director Jeana Klevene with live interactive music accompaniment and assistance provided by a Physical Therapist or by PT students.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our goal is to make the art of dance accessible to as many children with specific needs as possible and to expand and diversify the performance offerings in our community.

Our partnerships and relationships with the Down Syndrome Association of Central Kentucky, Bluegrass Youth Ballet, Fayette County Public Schools and the University of Kentucky's Department of Physical Therapy allow us to continue to progress and grow our outreach programming. Our partnerships with local musicians, dancers and aerial/circus artists as well as with the Lyric Theatre support our growth as a unique performing contemporary dance company.

Our major accomplishments so far have been to reach over 400 children in a single year and provide them with dance training and performance opportunities and to put on brand new, innovative contemporary dance performance events each season. One major obstacle we are facing is keeping up with this growth rate. We are quickly approaching the need to hire a second outreach instructor and would also like to work towards hiring an Executive Director so that our current director can focus all of her energy on the Artistic aspect of the organization vs. doing it all. Both of these key personal additions will be an important step in ensuring our continued growth as an organization.   Keeping our performance model fresh and unique is important to us and we will always strive to bring something new and exciting to our audiences in a fairly dance-saturated market. We will continue to form new partnerships and collaborations to ensure the continued progress of our performing company.
