THE GROWTH OF AN IDEA

At the Kollective Idea, it all starts with just an idea. We are a youth company who are dedicated to give performers the understanding they need to meet the challenges and requirements of their industry. We will provide you the inside perspective and experience to help build your idea into a future in dance.

THE START OF AN IDEA

We always start somewhere unfamiliar, unknown and unexplored. If we already knew where we were, what to do and how to do it, there would be no experimentation, learning and adventuring in life. We started The Kollective Idea with the simple idea to share our experience with others. Whether you are at the start or further along, we have been there too. The Kollective Idea is made up of award winning experts who have already developed in your field and are ready to guide you through the process needed to grow your idea and succeed in the creative industry.
