The DK dancers have passion and dedication for dance and Dance Kaleidoscope. In this video by WFYI Productions, the dancers voice their feelings about dance while dancing in urban areas around Indianapolis.
DK dancers Phillip Crawshaw, Jillian Godwin and Stuart Coleman are appearing in performances with other companies this summer. We wanted to catch up with them to hear how their expereinces there are going.
Artistic Director David Hochoy says, "DK dancers are known for their versatility and their ability to seem at home in a number of different styles of dance. Audience members are constantly saying to me, 'I didn't know they were such good actors!' It's healthy for our dancers to venture into new explorations of their talent and artistry, so I encourage them to pursue these opportunities. There is indeed no limit to the ever-expanding well of creativity and expression that dwells in all of us."

Why do you dance?
I dance because it the most fulfilling activity I have ever come across. It is a physical, mental and emotional challenge. I get to open up and be myself, yet also play an endless amount of characters. I get to be part of a team and accomplish amazing feats, then sometimes I get the chance to shine on my own. It never gets boring and not to mention, its fun!
DK's Artistic Director, David Hochoy, was approached by Alexa Harris who is working on a project about what it's like to go into the dance field called Careers in Art Project. She granted DK permission to publish her Q&A here.

Why do you dance?
I am not always good with my words or speaking in front of people and dance allows me to be the most honest version of myself without any reservations. Dance also helps push me to new boundaries and gives me the opportunity to discover something new about myself every day.
