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.
