History of KDA

History of Kaleidoscope

Kaleidoscope made it’s debut in November 1994 at a time when no other competition ventured into Northern New England.  Under the direction of Melissa Hoffman, a 28 year studio owner and adjudicator, Kaleidoscope has earned the reputation of not only being a “dance family competition” but the “dress rehearsal for the season”.  This is because there is always a judging panel that speaks non-stop to help studio directors, teachers and students learn from their competition experience.  The atmosphere among studios is always supportive!  After all, that is what it is all about. Education and friendship!

We hope you will consider joining us for our 23rd season!
