Visionary Dance Theatre and Kidz Danz Kompany hosts best-selling author, artist and teacher J. Ruth Gendler

Visionary Dance Theatre (VDT) and Kidz Danz Kompany (KDK) are excited to announce that we will be hosting best-selling author, artist and teacher J. Ruth Gendler on May 5th-6th in San Diego to facilitate a workshop and see KDK’s production titled “Ballet My Way”.

On May 6th from 4pm-5:30pm at the San Diego Performing Arts Center (4579 Mission Gorge Place, San Diego, CA, 92120) will be facilitating the custom workshop titled “Qualities of Creativity: Dancing with Words”. In this experiential workshop, J. Ruth Gendler, author of the bestselling The Book of Qualities, shares her approach to the creative process and offers participants new ways to write. This workshop is for everyone – those who love to write and those who would rather be dancing.

On May 5th-6th @ 7pm, Kidz Danz Kompany presents our spring dance concert titled “Ballet My Way” at the San Diego Performing Arts Center (4579 Mission Gorge Place, San Diego, CA, 92120). Founding Artistic Director Spencer John Powell will premiere two new works. The first, “In the Land of Qualities – A Ballet”, is a fun new fairy tale inspired by “The Book of Qualities” by J. Ruth Gendler. This work explores the Human Qualities within us all, such as Fear, Power, Charm and Joy, etc. The second work by the Artistic Director is titled “My Mother’s Son”, a deeply moving work which will include all of the male dancers of KDK. Included in this work will be a very special appearance by the male dancers of Visionary Dance Theatre who will join them on stage for this beautiful piece. Join us as we celebrate the world of Ballet in our own way. We break all the rules of ballet and still capture the brilliance of classical ballet. Come down and see as KDK mixes Ballet with Hip Hop, Modern, and just some plain old dancing-fun!
