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.

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.

Thanks again.

Miss Gina
