UPDATE August 2019

Canyon Dance Family:

Each year, we make upgrades and improvements both inside and out of our (old but awesome) building to keep it in the best shape possible. It is an ongoing process.

We have occasional clean-up days and we still have much more that needs painting.  Any donations of time or materials is welcome and appreciated! Contact Miss Gina if you want to help.

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!

Planned upgrades includes some landscaping out front including artificial grass on the side borders of the parking area, and some pavers to the back door on the south side. We need to smooth out the ground (a bobcat can do the job). Of course, there’s always more to paint in the studio. Your patience is appreciated as we work on these projects.

Current needs include:

  • a Bobcat to smooth out the dirt on the south side

  • help with laying pavers

  • painting the teacher’s bathroom and the remaining walls in the dance room.

  • We also look forward to refinishing the floor in near future.

We recently updated the vanities/sinks in the bathroom with a faucet big enough to refill water bottles and got a new drinking fountain! 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, updated the exterior with some stack stone, and we painted our door a bright TEAL!. Mr. Nathaniel painted a beautiful mural on our large wall.  New lights were installed to replace the florescents in the dance room with LED, and we added a blue-tooth system for the teachers. One of the best upgrades is our online registration system. This helps keep the studio management organized as well as affording multiple ways for parents to access information and pay tuition.

Here's to a new fresh look, upgrades, and fun at Canyon Dance Academy. 

Thanks again.

Miss Gina
