IP was so privileged to recently photograph Cabarrus Dance Academy’s 24th Annual Christmas Ballet. Over the past few decades CDA has been preforming a ballet benefiting the Coltrane LIFE Center.
Each year the dancers perform the Nativity Ballet and one of a few favorite Christmas stories; this year was “The Snow Angel”. There were also a few exciting additions to the ballet this year including a performance from CDA’s liturgical dance class, a swingin’ group of shag dancers, and as always a stunning number from the Lee-ettes.
The really special thing about the ballet is admission is by donation- all proceeds are donated to the Coltrane LIFE Center which is a non-profit adult day health center. They provide programs, activities, care and supervision to older and disabled adults without being placed in a nursing home environment. This year, CDA raised more than ever, an astonishing $4,000 from simply placing a basket at the door of the auditorium! What a special gift!
Thanks again to Miss Tammy and the dancers of Cabarrus Dance for letting us share the evening with you! We had a blast!
