Perfect for the enthusiastic dancer who wants to share a love of dance with their friends! A professional teaching artist will encourage children to dance outside of the box and incorporate their own personality in each movement. The Birthday boy or girl can pick their favorite song and we will choreograph a dance to it.






This party will awaken the inner actor and transport party-goers to a faraway land. A KCYA teaching artist will customize an imaginative (and age appropriate) theatre experience that will bring adventure to life. The Birthday girl or boy can choose from a list of themes or come up with their own.






Does your child love to draw and paint? Share that love with other young artists. A KCYA teaching artist will lead hands-on arts activities customized just for you and each party-goer will bring a project home. The Birthday boy or girl can choose from a list of projects (all project materials will be provided).
