Capital Dance Project
seeks young artists
A huge part of CDP's mission is to make our performances accessible to everyone in our community. Thanks to CDP's Big Day of Giving donors, we are able to sponsor 200 free tickets to Behind the Barre: Made in Sacramento for Sacramento's underserved youth. In addition, we are excited to announce our newest artist call for collaboration with Sacramento's youth - incorporating their original artwork into a brand new choreographic work in our show! Check out the Behind the Barre Artwork Submissions for more information.
Sensory Friendly Dance Classes
Capital Dance Project is excited to launch a new aspect of our summer season in addition to our annual performances - Sensory Friendly dance classes. Artists of the Capital Dance Project will lead introductory dance classes for individuals with autism or other sensory related disabilities. The classes will focus on creative movement, light stretching and above all else, allowing the students to experience the freeing movement of dance in a non-judgmental environment.
Behavior Therapists will also be on hand to assist the class. Fidget toys, noise canceling headphones, stress balls, and bean bag chairs will be provided to help ensure the class is welcoming and comfortable for all students.
