Kinetic Dance Collective is a new dance troupe under the direction of Monica Kapelar and assistant Katie Wertz. KDC has six full company dancers.

March 28 KDC will be performing for Divas (fundraiser for the Arts Council) at the Della Herman Theatre. As well as giving back to the community, the troupe will be competing in festivals throughout the north.

Kinetic Dance offers classes for performance level as well as weekly classes for youth and adults from beginner to experienced.
