Hello, My Name is Paige Rosener and I am 13 years old. I am raising money to Better Lives Through Dance. While I have had the honor of dancing at Colorado Conservatory of Dance for the past 4 years, many of you may not realize that CCD brings dance to thousands of children outside of the studio. Since 2006, The Colorado Conservatory of Dance has presented interactive performances using Dance to engage school aged children in thoughtful and engaging conversation about bullying. Since it‘s inception, our anti-bullying programs have been seen by over 40,000 school children across the Denver Metro Area.
In addition, the Colorado Conservatory of Dance’s Title I Elementary Partnerships bring year-long arts experiences to nearly 2,500 students in four public schools in high-need neighborhoods each year. More than 80% of the students in these schools fall below the federal poverty line and up to 25% are classified as homeless. Studies show that students with high levels of arts participation outperform students lacking the arts in all areas of competency. The impact is even more significant in students with low-income backgrounds. CCD’s two-year residencies provide the opportunity for students to gain confidence through an in-depth process that merges dance with each school’s specific curricular priorities. Now you may understand why CCD means so much to me. please help me raise money so we can continute to offer these amazing programs to those who may not have the opportunity to dance. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
