CANCELLED: Kids Dance Outreach Event of the Year “Message in a Bottle”
Presented by Kids Dance Outreach

Due to Governor Holcomb’s announced steps to reduce the spread of the coronavirus in Indiana, events at the Butler Arts & Events Center (of Butler University) are cancelled or postponed today through Monday, May 11. Click here for a full statement.


Kids Dance Outreach’s 2020 Event of the Year, Message in a Bottle, will bring together children from across Indianapolis in a vibrant performance celebrating the wonder and beauty of our Earth. 

Featuring original choreography, live music, and the students in KDO’s Advanced Program, KDO’s Event of the Year will incorporate dance, poetry and song inspired by environmental messages and themes as we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day.

We will reflect on the current state of our planet as well as all the gifts it has to offer. We hope to inspire our audiences to think deeply about how everyday small actions can make a change.

Before Kids Dance Outreach began in 2012, there were virtually no opportunities during the school day for Indianapolis children to experience high-quality dance opportunities with live music. Since its creation, through its In-School Program, Advanced Program, and Adaptive Dance Program, KDO has served over 10,500 children of all backgrounds and abilities around Indianapolis at no cost to the children or their families.
