Dance Houston Directory:
Kennedy Dance Theatre opened up as a performing arts studio in 1973 in Pasadena, TX on a $200 investment. Director Mary Lee Kennedy wanted to establish a studio that could offer a comprehensive artistic experience with dance, musical theatre, performing arts classes and more. Although the studio has grown and changed over the years it continues to be one of the most well known and premiere dance studios in the Clear Lake area, offering classes with a high standard of style, technique, and performance.
We offer a professionally trained staff bringing quality dance education to over 700 students. There are more than 100 classes offered each week in ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, lyrical, hip hop, musical theatre and fitness for ages 2 thru adult.
KDT is also dedicated to giving back to the community by performing for local events & organizations free of charge. Our Special Needs Program offers free dance classes to students with down syndrome, autism, and other developmental disabilities. Teachers and student assistants involved volunteer their time each week to help these students improve their motor skills, confidence, and socialization while having fun. One of our most important programs is our scholarship fund, which has been established to help students pursue their dreams in dance who otherwise could not afford instruction.
We have been featured on ABC 13 News, Fox 26 News, Great Day Houston, the Houston Chronicle, Change Magazine, Bay Area Houston Magazine and many more because of our dedication to dance, art, and the community.
