Happy Holidays from CVDA

Dec 18, 2017 | Bottom Home Page

CVDA just wrapped up another successful weekend of The Nutcracker performances. If you were fortunate enough to attend the show, you know our dancers did a phenomenal job. We are thrilled to have raised $20,000 for our favorite local charities: Love Inc., Faith in Action,  A Family Place, and Newberg FISH. A huge thank you to the dancers, families, audience members and our loyal sponsors http://www.newbergnutcracker.com/sponsors.html who help make this possible.

With The Nutcracker 2017 behind us, that means the holidays are around the corner. CVDA will be closed for winter break, Dec. 18, 2017 – Jan. 1, 2018. Before we say “see you next year” allow us to provide some gift ideas for your favorite dancer:

  1. Turnboard https://www.amazon.com/dp/B003YCO7IW/ref=as_at?creativeASIN=B003YCO7IW&linkCode=w61&imprToken=w59Y0uXnGw0rhXwYilYNDw&slotNum=14&tag=giftcanyon-20 The Turnboard is a wonderful tool to help dancers improve posture, balance, dexterity, and of course, turns!
  2. Resistance bands https://www.walmart.com/c/kp/resistance-bands These bands help develop flexibility and strength when paired with stretching exercises. (available in All Star Dance + Athletic Wear too!)
