To inspire all people regardless of age or ability to be comfortable moving their bodies in fun and unique dance programs. Programs are customized to target educational, physical, and social/emotional goals for schools, community centers and social service organizations.
We provide creative dance education programs for all populations from infancy through senior citizens and for all abilities. We believe everyone has the right to learn how to utilize the one tool they come into the world with, their body, to their own individual fullest potential. Programs target unserved and underserved populations such as low income inner city youth, seniors, early learners, individuals with developmental disabilities, physical disabilities, and chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease and Dementia. These programs are designed to bring dance to people by going into schools, social service organizations, community centers, senior centers and businesses.
Kinetic Creativity is committed to providing all programs in a way that reduce our impact on the environment.
