Click the play arrow to begin watching. We recommend you watch in full screen view.
This Virtual School Show provides our students the opportunity to perform for friends and family. Dances were filmed during class. Our students worked in collaboration with each other and their teacher to present a dance that is age-appropriate and creative, highlighting what they explored and learned in class during our online Spring Session.
From joyful preschoolers, to children and teens demonstrating dance skills and embodied self-expression, to adults of all ages relating to their screens and each other in creative ways, our Virtual School Show recognizes that dance is for all ages and abilities and celebrates the dancer inside all of us. Thank you for joining us!

Kaleidoscope Gift of Dance Concert 2020
Join Kaleidoscope Dance Company, with Mosaic Dance Company, for the Gift of Dance, a virtual concert of original modern dance works choreographed by youth ages 7-17. Navigating social distancing guidelines and inspired by the beautiful outdoor spaces of the Pacific Northwest, these dances reflect our unusual times. Creating for the camera rather than the theatre stage, our artists utilize creative, flexible, and innovative thinking as they work together to bring their choreographic visions to life.

Snapshots – A Response to Covid-19
Snapshots is a video project created by Kaleidoscope Dance Company in April 2020 in response to social distancing measures put in place during the Covid-19 pandemic and the cancellation of the company’s annual Spring Concert. Each dancer created and filmed a piece in or near their home to convey their feelings about the pandemic and the impact the “new normal” is having on their lives.
Kaleidoscope – Choreography to Performance
This video follows the 37 dancers of Kaleidoscope Dance Company as they work with three choreographers (Jay Tan, Elizabeth Heard Hodgson, and Brian J. Evans) over five weeks to create pieces for the annual Kaleidoscope Spring Concert. It concludes with performance footage of each final dance at Broadway Performance Hall in Seattle, WA.
