I have been dancing at CCD since I was 3 years old. I have taken ballet, jazz, modern, and tap classes. I love dance because it is beautiful! This is the 3rd year that I have danced in the Nutcracker. It is a great show to go see with your family because it's a good story and a good event to see at Christmas time. My favorite role that I am dancing in the Nutcracker this year is a Bon Bon because it makes people laugh and it's cute. I hope you can come see me in the Nutcracker this year!
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 - · And…performing a version of The Nutcracker that is specifically adapted for people with sensory needs, so families 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 a part of a non-profit arts organization that gives so much back to the community.
