Calling All Kern County High School Seniors!

KDA wants to celebrate the class of 2021 by showcasing YOUR MOVES across Kern County

Strut your SHUFFLE! Jump for JOY! Hit that SPLIT!

Deadline EXTENDED for Video Submission: Sunday, May 30, 2021

Kern Dance Alliance is proud to announce a new project, Seniors MOVE- a montage music video featuring high school seniors moving and grooving across Kern County. Seniors MOVE is designed to recognize the class of 2021 and their valiant efforts navigating uncharted territory during their final year of high school. Kern County high school seniors are invited to submit videos to KDA wearing their school logos and showcasing their best dance moves to be featured in a video with other Kern County high school seniors. KDA encourages the use of movement and dance to promote positivity, and the nonprofit organization is excited to give seniors a platform to display their talents while offering Kern County more ways to celebrate the class of 2021 after a year of quarantine.

WHY SENIORS MOVE?

High school seniors have had a difficult year. They have had to master new technology for learning and cope with the stress of not having their caring educators nearby to help them through these difficult and unprecedented times. Students have missed opportunities for comradery, including some of the most treasured senior-year moments like prom, athletics, senior awards, and many more. With in-person graduation approaching after a year of being in school online, KDA felt it was imperative to create a campaign to celebrate the success of those whose high school memories were greatly affected by the pandemic.
