Fundraising Silent Auction

The CDF Fundraising Silent Auction is scheduled to be held in the Fall of 2018. Proceeds from the auction fund our Community Outreach Programs. This year we hope to raise over $12,000, and hope you will donate.

Proceeds from this annual auction fund community scholarships, which promote dance education and awareness within the Triangle region, as well as our other outreach activities:

  • Dance Education – currently through a partnership with the local Boys and Girls Clubs, YMCA, Raleigh Rescue Mission and Step-Up Ministry
  • Collaboration – Our dancers collaborated this past year with Powell Elementary to provide on-site classes and choreography, culminating with a school-wide performance to promote arts awareness. This project was designed in order to help students to understand the importance of accepting others, despite their apparent differences. The main objective was to help students look beneath the surface when interacting with others. As students study the people that they interact with on a daily basis, they will learn to understand and appreciate how life events can shape a person.
  • Culture – Participation in dance performances at local cultural events, festivals, and charity functions
  • Scholarships – Studio scholarships for under-served youth that includes full tuition for dance classes, dancewear and dance shoes, costumes for performances, and tickets and photos for family members.
  • Special Needs Class – Studio classes for Special Needs Children within our community
