This is Anna's 3rd year in the CCD's performance of the Nutcracker!!! Please consider donating to Anna's Nutcracker Fundraiser and help her reach her goal!!
It is her first year as a full cast member and she started practicing in the beginning of September every Saturday for 5 performances in December. She is at the studio anywhere between 2-4 hours on those Saturdays.
Anna looks forward to this every year and is sad when it is over! This year she will be part of the party children and a little angel. We are very proud of her and all of her hard work. We have loved our time at CCD as a non-profit and the atmosphere they create for our dancers and less fortunate dancer's in the community. Please ready below for some information regarding CCD and what they are all about.

Your Donation Makes a Difference
What makes CCD truly special isn't only what happens within our studios, where we operate one of the region's preeminent dance training programs for children and adults--it's also the impact we have outside our walls as we bring the arts into the the community.
For every one student who takes classes at CCD's Broomfield home, we bring dance to over 100 children in schools throughout the Denver/Boulder metro area, many of whom belong to historically underserved populations in Title I institutions. This year alone, CCD educational programming will reach over 21,000 children through our Move to Learn partnerships, free after-school ballet, and renowned anti-bullying original ballet touring production.
Additionally, we believe in providing access to dance for those who have not traditionally been welcomed into "typical" studio and performance environments. Our sensory-friendly performances reach hundreds of "guests of honor" each year, offering free and low-cost admission to CCD productions including our legendary "Nutcracker." We are also the home to a thriving program for special needs children known as Ballet Expressions, as well as providing adaptive dance programs throughout the community for dancers with particular special needs.
In other words, your generosity allows us to sustain and expand our mission to literally thousands of young people and their families, to introduce them to the wonder of dance, and to welcome them into our artistic family.
