KAIROS Dance Theater is committed to utilizing dance to inspire, empower, and build connections. For the past 15 years, KAIROS has enabled dancers and non-dancers to discover their voices and the importance of their own personal stories through carefully crafted & customized training programs. The company has extensive experience working with movers of all ages and abilities. KAIROS offers a wide range of educational opportunities and is available to lead classes, workshops, and residencies for youth and adults — dancers (beginner to professional) and non-dancers, including youth labeled as at-risk. In addition to classes and creating new work with students, we offer discussions, post-performance conversation, and opportunities for community engagement, including the incorporation of community members into performances.
