Dance performance to benefit area families and seniors

Posted

“’Twas the night before performance when all ‘crost the stage, not a child was dancing, no matter what age. The costumes were ironed and hung with such care, in hopes that an audience soon would be there.”

Cody Center for the Performing Arts will be “Taking Care of Christmas” in their sixth annual benefit for Cody Holiday Helpers. The show, which features dance, music and drama to celebrate the season, takes place Tuesday, Nov. 30 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wynona Thompson Auditorium. 

Admission to the performance is Pay-What-You-Can with all proceeds going to Cody Holiday Helpers. Attendees are also encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped gift that will be given to a local child or senior in need for Christmas.

“We love to be one of the first organizations to kick off the holiday season,” explains CCPA Director Angie McKenzie. “This annual fundraiser is a way for the CCPA family to give back to our community while also getting the chance to perform so many of our Christmas favorites.”

Dancers in kindergarten through high school will perform in the show, which will also feature the CCPA Company dancers, Studio Theatre at CCPA drama students, community voices and more. Audiences will be entertained with some of their favorite Christmas songs, student-written holiday scenes and a variety of dance styles.

The show will be livestreamed for those unable to attend. Streaming information and ideas for donations can be found at www.codyperformingarts.com

Cody Center for the Performing Arts has been a part of the Big Horn Basin for 38 years, offering dance instruction for children and adults ages 2 and up. Classes include creative movement, ballet, pointe, tap, jazz, modern, hip-hop and acro-dance. CCPA is home to Studio Theatre at CCPA and recently expanded to offer gymnastics at the Cody Center for Gymnastics and Acrobatic Arts.

Holiday Helpers is a local organization that has been helping Cody families and seniors for over 20 years. For more information about how to get involved, contact Jaque Sims at 307-899-4936 or visit www.facebook.com/CodyHolidayHelpers.
