Season 7 brought more than its share of challenges and setbacks, but the KDC dancers pulled together and proved that
isn’t just their catchphrase or physical condition; it’s their attitude. Their collective determination and sense of pride. Their teamwork, perseverance, humility, character, trust, sense of family. Keegan Dance Company is blessed to have had those challenges—those experiences—this season, and to have shared them and overcome them together.
