Kidz Danz Kompany, San Diego’s premier children’s dance company, presents “The Constitution” at the San Diego Performing Arts Center (4579 Mission Gorge Place, San Diego, CA, 92120) on April 13-14, 2018 @ 7pm. Known for their socially conscious work, Kidz Danz Kompany will tackle American History through dance.
“The Constitution” is a celebration of our history, thorns, roses and all. Most importantly we celebrate not only being an American citizen, but the important fact that we are also citizens of a greater world Community.
Founding Artistic Director Spencer John Powell will present a new work based on the love letters from John and Abigail Adams titled “John and Abigail Adams” and “The 13th Amendment”, a beautiful moving duet with KDK dancers Gianna May and Harmony Richardson who ask their audience to remember our country’s past. Long time KDK dancers Yasmina Devos and Zayda Estrada will tackle the 3/5 rule on African Americans titled “3/5”, which follows the reality of American slavery from the auction block to the successful African Americans we see today. KDK dancer Audrey Wheatbread will be talking about a “Revolution” in this very moving solo choreographed and danced by Aubrey herself. Included in the production will be “Laughing”, a fun work that salutes Benjamin Franklin, and “The Dreamers”, a moving work dedicated to the immigrant dream. Kidz Danz Kompany will also pay homage to such historical figures such as Black Hawk, Phyllis Wheatley, Dolly Madison and others in their work “S.O.S”.
The concert will end with “We the Kidz of the United States of America”. This work will ask us to be hopeful for the future of our beautiful country and the importance of freedom for America and the world!
Come out and bring the whole family for a history lesson like no other. You will be moved, you will learn, and, by the end of the concert, you will be dancing in your seats!
