Charlotte Photographer Photographs Cabarrus Dance Academy’s 24th Annual Christmas Ballet

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!
