How about a few beautiful pictures of Kansas City Dance Festival, which will be premiering for the 4th consecutive year in summer, 2016. I do have to brag a bit, only because my handsome husband and awesome friend are the Artistic Directors. At a young age these “boys” are learning the ropes, taking risks, hiring exceptional choreography, and allowing dancers to be free to move – groove – grow – feed off other artists – and excel at all levels.
Dancers always want a few simple things. A positive atmosphere, challenging and popular choreography, and inspiration from other artists. A huge part of what KCDF is about is to create the most effective environment possible. Nothing is better than that! Like Violette Verdy always said, “Dance is hard enough as it is.”
This year as general manager, I keep checking off the hefty “to do list”, especially before baby Krutzkamp is born. It’s just us three but thankfully we have an amazing board of directors, production staff, and supportive friends and family.
Check us out if you haven’t already and enjoy these photographs, all by our amazing head photographer, Philip Koenig.
