CCD is a non-profit organization that not only gives great training to students like me, it also does a lot of great work for the community, including: Working with four area at-risk elementary schools to bring arts-integrated learning into the classroom. Teaching dance to students with adaptive learning needs, both here at CCD and in two public elementary schools. Performing anti-bullying ballets for at least 4,000 elementary students each year. Each year we perform a version of the Nutcracker that is specifically adapted for people with sensory needs, so family with special needs can make happy holiday memories together! I am helping raise money for CCD because I love dancing here, and I am proud of being part of a non-profit arts organization that gives so much back to the community.
