Kenneth Walker Dance Project was founded in 2004 and incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 2005. KWDP grew out of the former Ballet Pacifica, where Kenneth Walker, a dancer with BP at the time and a few of his colleagues created a show to perform at a festival. The success of this project spawned a collaboration that was brought home to the community in which Kenneth was born. KWDP’s first dancers volunteered their talents and time to grow the organization into an exciting collaborative rather than a traditional company. Kenneth invites the thoughts and ideas of his dancers when creating new works and offers dancers the opportunity to find their own voice within the work.
