It’s back….the infamous DAD’S DANCE IN THE SPRING SHOW, MAY 11
This year, we invite any of the Dads or Brothers or Grandpas at the studio to perform in the show. It will entail four rehearsals during April/May. You need to attend at least three of them, so you don’t embarrass your kids. You will need to come to the Dress Rehearsal Saturday morning, and perform in both shows. You will be the first dance in the show, so you can then go to the audience to watch your little dancer. We will go over details at rehearsal. Costumes will consist of items you probably already have. No make-up required. Just a fun little number to get the show started and demonstrate that ANYBODY can dance! We're going to have a blast. Please sign up and you will get more details later. If your wife/partner is better at checking emails, please put theirs down, too.
Rehearsal Times: Wednesday April 17 8:45-9:45 pm Wednesday April 24 8:45-9:45 pm Wednesday May 1 8:45-9:45 pm Wednesday May 8 8:45-9:45 pm
May 11 at the Clifford E. White Theater on NAU campus
This year's performance will be based on the book "A Stick is an Excellent Thing" by Marilyn Singer.

UPDATE January 2019
Canyon Dance Family:
This year, we have been making multiple upgrades and improvements both inside and out. We had the parking lot re-paved, installed new wood floors in the lobby, painted, added some benches with cubbies for the students to store their things, changed some of the lighting, added a blue-tooth system for the teachers, replaced the old cedar shake shingles that were so popular in the '70s with some stack stone, and we painted our door a beautiful TEAL! Mr. Nathaniel painted a beautiful mural on our large wall. New lights were installed to replace the florescents in the dance room, we got new vanities/sinks in the bathrooms with a faucet big enough to refill water bottles and a new drinking fountain,
Your patience is appreciated as we work to keep our (old but awesome) building in the best shape possible. Any donations of time or materials is welcome and appreciated! Contact Miss Gina if you want to help. firstname.lastname@example.org
We have occasional clean-up days and we still have much more that needs painting.
Canyon Dance Academy is part of Canyon Movement Company which is a 501-c-3 non-profit arts organization, so any monetary donations can be tax-deductible.
Since we are a non-profit, there is not much left after paying the bills to contribute towards upgrades. If you know of someone or a company that would like to make a tax-deductible donation to us so we can continue to upgrade that would be awesome!
Here's to a new fresh look, desperately needed upgrades, and fun at Canyon Dance Academy. Once everything is done, we will plan an open house to show it off.
