Welcome to a special place! A place to be Inspired, Challenged, and Motivated. Welcome to KIDabra! At the Conference, you'll meet the New as well as Foundational Voices of KIDabra and The KIDshow World! Different from most conventions, at KIDabra Conference our speakers are asked to bring a new, fresh, original talk each time they appear, as we explore performance and creating great shows from every angle.
This approach helps make each of our KIDabra gatherings, a unique, handmade,
once in a lifetime "Happening" Just for You!
