Why Dance? Why Give?

The Creative Dance Center and Kaleidoscope Dance Company invite you to support the contributions CDC and Kaleidoscope have made to children, families, and the community over the past 36 years. The Creative Dance Center is recognized world wide as a leader in the field of dance education. This speaks to the ceaseless curiosity, passionate intellect, and thoughtful inquiry of CDC's Founder, Anne Green Gilbert. With great dedication she has steered the organization since its inception. On July 1st of 2014 Anne retired as Director of the Creative Dance Center and Kaleidoscope Dance Company. Longtime staff and faculty members Terry Goetz and Anna Mansbridge have stepped into these roles, Terry as the Director of CDC and Anna as Artistic Director of Kaleidoscope Dance Company.

As we move into the future we continue to grow and develop the classes, workshops, and professional development opportunities that our community has come to expect from us. We believe that dance can sharpen the minds, touch the hearts, strengthen the bodies, and nurture the creativity of children and adults alike. We know the answer to the question, why dance? Let's answer the question, why give?

When you give, the contribution you make to the Creative Dance Center enables us to continue building on the foundation of the past 36 years. The Annual Giving campaign is our largest and most important fundraiser. It may be that your employer can match your tax-deductible donation, doubling your contribution to CDC. You can choose to support the Creative Dance Center, the Anne Green Gilbert (AGG) Endowment Fund, or the Jesse Jaramillo Scholarship Fund. Other ways you can support CDC include attending Kaleidoscope Dance Company performances and participating in our annual Chance for Dance drawing held every Spring. CDC also participates in Give BIG, a one-day online giving event that inspires people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a stronger, more vibrant community for all.

When you give, you become a part of CDC's future. If you have benefited from the wonderful classes we offer, if you've developed or renewed your love of dance and shared that with your family by attending a performance of Kaleidoscope Dance Company, then you are a part of the past, present, and future of CDC. You are a part of the Creative Dance Center family.

When you give, we are able to continue outreach to families and children throughout our community and you support the vision and goals we have for the future of CDC. With your help we will:

  • increase our parent education and outreach with the application of brain research for ages Zero to Five
  • provide free classes to families and children living in the North Seattle Mary's Place shelter
  • expand our Early Childhood, Children and Teens, and Adult Programs
  • train educators in Brain-Compatible teaching methods through the Summer Dance Institute for Teachers and our Educator/Community Workshops
  • enlarge our facilities to better serve you with office and performance space on site
  • continue to entertain and enthrall audiences near (the Gift of Dance, local school performances, the Spring Concert) and far (international travel and performances at Dance and the Child International conferences) with our modern dance company of children, Kaleidoscope Dance Company.
Why do we dance? To bring joy into our lives and balance to our bodies and minds! Why give? So we can keep on dancing!

Your generous gift to Creative Dance Center, the AGG Endowment Fund, and/or the Jesse Jaramillo Scholarship Fund will ensure the continued growth of our organization, sustaining the exceptional work you have come to expect. Thank you!
