InHale Performance Series

KYL/D's InHale Performance Series is a quarterly performance series where selected artists receive free performance space, marketing support, technical assistance and written audience feedback.

InHale offers a supportive environment that fosters creative exchange of ideas, cultivates community and provides opportunities for members of the public to experience a wide spectrum of dance/movement disciplines.

To date, KYL/D has presented over 900 movement artists from PA and beyond, including from DC, NY, NJ, NC, WI, IL, VA, MA, MD, MI, and CT. The shows have been filled to capacity.
