Of Moving Colors Productions is hosting the fifth annual
Byrde's Dancers Scholarship Luncheon, an effort that
brings life-changing arts opportunities to children in need.
Each year, OMC presents Kick It Out, a community outreach project
that involves 75-100 children from all around our city.
The project is a large one, encompassing a four-month
dance experience,where children learn under professional
dancers and perform onstage alongside them in a stunning production.
Around half of these children are only able to participate in Kick It Out
through the assistance of scholarships. A handful of those students
receive full scholarships. This offers a complete experience
that awards children with classes, costumes, dance shoes,
photos and videos of the performance, as well as
tickets for each family to Kick It Out.
