Who We Are
Kinetics Dance Theatre is a non-profit organization dedicated to the development and presentation of contemporary dance as a vital art form in the community. KDT houses Kinetics Dance Company, presenting a rich repertoire of innovative concert dance, Kinetics School of Contemporary Dance, offering classes in dance technique and theory to students of all ages and levels, and Kinetics Youth Ensemble, providing opportunities for devoted youth to perform and participate in workshops throughout the area. In each of its three components, Kinetics demonstrates its strong commitment to the region by emphasizing community involvement through dance presentation, outreach, and education.
In 1984, Dorothy Fried, Keith Nichols and Stephanie Simmons founded Kinetics Dance Theatre as a space for local dance artists to create and perform.
