When The Kelsey Awards were first created, producer Kyrus Keenan Westcott and choreographer Rachel Tovar brainstormed ways that they could make the ceremony as interesting and fun as possible, while providing the Kelsey Theatre community another avenue to showcase their talent. It was at that point that they established a dance company called The Kelsey Theatre Dance Squad.
Since its inception in 2011, The Dance Squad has grown into becoming a natural fixture during The Kelsey Award ceremony. Each year, The Dance Squad showcases their immense talent, skill and proficiency in contemporary, Broadway, and hip-hop, and this year, K2KEntertainment and The Kelsey Theatre are extremely excited to announce the 2015 Kelsey Theatre Dance Squad, celebrating it’s fifth anniversary!
This year’s Dance Squad features returning favorites along with some new dancers added into the mix.

The Kelsey Theatre Awards are presented by K2KEntertainment and The Kelsey Theatre Advisory Board. They both have jointly administered the Kelsey Awards since 2011, the year of the first live Kelsey Award ceremony. The awards, however, have been handed out since 2009.
What sets this event apart from any other theater community theater award events is the fact that the general public (you) choose the winners in each category, including Outstanding Production of a Musical. Beginning June 22, the general public will vote for their favorite production and/or performers from the previous season. To learn more about the voting process and the award rules,CLICK HERE.
