In addition to its innovative concert work, Kinetics Dance Company is dedicated to the presentation of an annual Family Concert Series presentation each season in the early spring. Designed to appeal to children as well as adults, Family Concert Series productions can be adapted from cultural folktales, children's literature, poetry or original stories. They emphasize cultural, artistic, and educational elements and combine sophisticated choreography with content that is fun and accessible for young audiences. Add imaginative props, elaborate costumes, and a cast of professional dancers, and the result is a stimulating artistic experience for the whole family.
