As Gene Kelly so proudly proclaimed multiple times in “Singin’ in the Rain,” he’s “gotta dance!” Those words can easily be the motto for the Kentucky Dance Theater, whose next performance promises to present “A World of Dance in the Bluegrass.” They’re not kidding; expect to see clogging, ballet, Latin fusion, swing, even Bollywood! Labeling itself a dance collective, this new company brings dancers from various regional studios, such as Dance Louisville, Studio One Cloggers and the Da La Dance Co., to introduce us to what they do best. KDT’s goal is to present “a celebration of life [through] dance.” The event also features singer Diane Timmons and artist Mike Stevenson painting live to the music.
