The original inception of the Kaleidoscope Dance Theatre began in 1988 with a production of Motown in the Mirror at SUNY Purchase that was produced and directed by Sean McLeod. That original group of dancers from that show stayed close knit, and Sean McLeod brought the dancers upstate, to found the professional dance company in Central New York in 1990. Kaleidoscope Dance Theatre is dually-based in NYC and Central New York, focused on bridging NYC with “The Other New York”.
