PHOTO GALLERY: For the love of movement: Kern Dance Alliance holds dance outreach, education event

Children celebrated the beauty of movement and dance Wednesday at the Children’s Dance Education and Outreach Event at the Historic Bakersfield Fox Theater.

Kern Dance Alliance hosted the afternoon to benefit local children from organizations that support underserved children such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County, Bakersfield Angels, CASA of Kern County and the Open Door Network. The idea is to make the arts more accessible.

The alliance invited dancers and dance organizations to showcase tap, hip hop, ballet, jazz and contemporary dance. The performance also featured participants with and without disabilities from the KDA ADAPTidance: DANCE + DISABILITY program.

Children who were interested in formal dance training could apply for scholarships to attend a dance studio.
