November 26, 2018 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-sixth year, we continue to fulfill our mission while expanding what we are doing. Some of our accomplishments this year include:
We received TWO new grants to continue our Dance for Parkinson’s Disease program
We produced the seventh annual Spring Dance Festival including guest artists from FALA, CaZo Dance in Phoenix, Dark Sky Aerial, and Canyon Dance Academy
This year, we are producing a NEW HOLIDAY show: A Christmas Carol Suite in Modern Bare Feet. We have performed 14 annual Nutcracker shows and we felt it was time to do something new. We anticipate returning to the Nutcracker and possibly alternating years, but we are excited for this new event! It includes lecture/demonstrations for Coconino High School, Leupp School, St Francis de Asis School, and Mountain School.
We also perform at the annual Dance in the Desert Festival in Las Vegas, NV, Arizona Dance West Festival, and the Arizona Dance Festival in Tempe.
We are collaborating with multiple local groups for our shows.
