Kacico Dance is a non-profit professional company here in Kansas City and is currently a Charlotte Street Urban Culture Project Studio Resident. April 2013 First Friday at EventPort will feature a show called the Song and Dance Project featuring live music by the local Irish band Flannigan’s Right Hook.

This intimate collaboration of music and dance plays an important role in presenting contemporary dance to new audiences.
