Ton Ko-Thi Children’s Performing Ensemble, translated as “Little Ko-Thi”, is the vanguard of Ko-Thi Dance Company’s
education outreach. Established in 1983 by company alumna Linda Lacy Hodge who understood the importance of passingvon culture & tradition through performance art to the younger generation. It identifies, nurtures and develops young artistic talent as they explore dance, music, & theater.
With members ranging in ages from 6-16, the Ton Ko-Thi boasts an impressive resume performing for Alvin Aliley, No Studios Dance Festival, Congresswoman Gwen Moore, Milwaukee City Hall, Summerfest with Ko-Thi alumna Naima Adedapo, and the Ravinia Festival in Illinois. Many of its former members have gone on to pursue a multitude of professional careers.
