Kyla has put together her 2013-2014 Dream Team! Now we're ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work. Here's a short rehearsal clip of Kyla & Jordan preparing for the recent A-T Benefit 'A Very Special Evening' at Lincoln Center. The piece they created last week will be part of our December show at Tennessee Williams Theatre. Get into it, Key West - This is going to be a good one!
We're working hard to fund our 2013-2014 season because we believe that dance is a vital part of every community. We want Key West to have a strong and viable dance scene. Over the past five years, we've done some great shows, like 1969 for example, but so far we've only been able to work on a project-to-project basis...Now we're ready to take the next step: A 30 week annual season!
