The Blue Zone

Community is the theme of our fall dance concert, The Blue Zone, named after the parts of the world that are home to the highest concentration of centenarians. We like to consider CKDC a Blue Zone of its own, right here in St. Louis. Because The Blue Zones are places where people pursue active, healthy lifestyles but most of all, find purpose. Join us at The Marcelle Friday, October 25 - Sunday, October 27. Concert times will be released soon!
