KDC is the award-winning, nationally-ranked competitive dance team directed by Miss Heather Southwell. As the Red Team’s Artistic Director, Miss Heather Southwell has earned a reputation for creating extraordinary choreography and for producing mentally and physically strong dancers who are as skilled in performance as they are in technique. She is a hands-on director who works with all of her company members each week.
Miss Heather’s formula for success is based on simple concepts: attendance and hard work are key; attitude is everything; and trust is imperative! Being a KDC Red Team dancer is about learning to be a strong teammate, and a loyal and loving person, as well as becoming a strong, technically-sound dancer and true artist, unafraid to take risks!.
Miss Heather commitment to excellence and her dedication to the dancers is reflected back in her dancers: her current 40-dancer roster boasts as many dancers 11 & under as there are 15 & older; 9 dancers have been with her for 11 years; she’s had more than a dozen sets of sisters, and in the past 5 years alone, 2 dozen dancers have traveled to Titusville several times a week from Melbourne, Cocoa Beach, Orlando, Winter Garden, Palm Bay and Jacksonville to be a part of the KDC experience!
KDC is based in Titusville, Florida (just 30 minutes east of Orlando), and offers a variety of training programs to accommodate the needs of today's dancers.
