The first glimpse/tease about this project came from the Instagram account of Caley and Kelsey, when they posted a picture of Derek along with other dancers rehearsing and they captioned it “something EPIC is brewing”…
Derek, along with Kelsey McCowan, co-choreographed an amazing routine for KAIROS, that includes tap dancing, hip hop, Argentine Tango, original music by Derek and Lindsey Stirling and more!
The shootings took place on June 12, 2016 and it was released on Derek’s YouTube Channel on October 4, 2016. On the same day, Derek also presented the project on Dancing with the Stars.
On December 22, 2016, the KAIROS single hit No1 on iTunes in Cyprus!
Below, we gathered all the pictures, videos and more related to the project!

“All humans are artists,all of us. Every symbol, every word, is a piece of art. […] I heard a word today that sparked my attention. But more importantly the meaning of the word that was given to it by the Greeks many years ago. […]
KAIROS. “Quality moment in time. The opportune moment to take action (the supreme moment) A moment of intermediate time in which everything happens. “
I love this. One, because it’s just a cool sounding word. But also because it communicates the power of a moment. The power of the Now! Making a decision and taking action in a single moment in which everything happens. Even as small or big as it seems. To change,to try, to accept, to grow, to quite to begin. The ‘opportune’ moment, the ‘supreme’ moment is now!”
