Kairos Alive! transforms lives through dance and story, and raises awareness of the importance of creative involvement across the lifespan for verifiable health benefits. Our Choreography of Care™ programs promote personal and community well-being through our Intergenerational Dance Hall™ public participation events, our Dancing Heart™ weekly programming, our Community Arts and Wellbeing™ Residencies, and other programs. We empower intergenerational and intercultural communities through participatory dance, music and story — with elders at the center.
– a revival of the dance hall as the community intersection of artistic, physical and social involvement – designed for all ages and abilities (ages 5-101), with elders at the center. These intergenerational, intercultural events feature live music, and participatory dance, story and theatre – intended to promote arts participation, health education and personal and community well-being. These are often paired with other health promotion programs of collaborating organizations.
– a nationally recognized program which vitally engages older adults of every ability, – including those who are physically frail, with Parkinson’s, early-mid-late stage Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia – in weekly arts participation and health education through interactive dance and storytelling. These 90-minute sessions put elders at the center of community activities, and have shown to positively improve the health of participants.
– are custom implementations of Kairos Alive! Choreography of Care™ programs, designed to promote intergenerational community coherence and leadership development. Residencies are developed in collaboration with participating arts, healthcare, Tribal, education and social service organizations. The result is an integrated, interactive arts, health and creative aging program designed for specific community needs.
Choreography of Care™ is a way of participating in the world, through collaborative caring encounters of dance, music and story to create personal and community wellbeing.
