Dear Canyon Movement Company Supporter,

     Thanks to the support of members like you, Canyon Movement Company has done some exciting things this year!  In our twenty-first year, we continue to fulfill our mission while expanding what we are doing.              
Our Mission: Canyon Movement Company, Inc., is a modern dance ensemble dedicated to sharing our passion and excitement with a growing audience by creating and presenting the art of dance through performance, education, and community and collaborative projects.

Some of our accomplishments this year include:

  • We received a grant to attend training for Dance for Parkinson’s Disease in NYC, and then implemented a program here in Flagstaff.
  • We produced the annual Flagstaff Performing Arts and Film Festival in May with dancers from Coconino Community College and Velocity Dance Company.
  • We produced our 11th annual Nutcracker at the newly renovated Coconino High School Auditorium, including free performances for Kinsey School, Coconino High School, and the Peaks Living Center.  
  • For the fourth year in a row, we worked with Tuba City Thunderbird School as they came to see the full production of our Nutcracker.
  • We also performed at the annual Dance in the Desert Festival in Las Vegas, Genesis Dance Concert, and the Arizona Dance Festival in Tempe, as well as produced our fifth annual Halloween show. 
  • And then there were multiple community performances at Heritage Square!
