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.

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!
