"Dance Kaleidoscope dancers have choreographed a new, original piece expressing America's values such as freedom, choice and courage. Through movement, their dances paint landscapes of the soul revealing the full spectrum of human emotions. You actually watch these American themes come to life through empowering movements and music of hope."  
        —Leah Beatty, IndyFringe Talks

"The complexity of [Jillian] Godwin's A Home for All was impressive. She mastered the elusive chore of representing multiplicity in the American Experience. The well-woven patterns, with nearly unstinting strife threaded amid notes of triumph, were busy but presented in an uncongested manner, making good use of the emotionally featureless music of Phillip Glass as a one-color canvas on which to paint." 
        —Jay Harvey, Jay Harvey Upstage

Act Two - Facets of Love 
DK Artistic Director has selected audience favorite romantic Rome Juliet balcony CEP webduets and moments from the company repertoire. This will include the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet Fantasy, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face and Crazy.
