Colorado Springs Dance Theatre

Dear loyal friends and patrons of CSDT,Jordan McHenry

So many things that we once took for granted now seem very precious. In the last few weeks, our lives have changed in a way that we would not have thought possible at the beginning of the year. We know the coronavirus pandemic has touched your lives in terms of personal, professional and creative activities and it will continue to do so. 

CSDT is making every effort to ensure the health of our beloved dance community. We have been in close conversation with local arts and cultural leaders and formulated some immediate response efforts. You will see new programs built specifically to aid dance students, studios and performing artists in persevering through this unprecedented challenge. For our incredible patrons and dance enthusiasts, we have some new ways to connect as well.

This is a global crisis that leaves no individual untouched. The Dance Theatre will continue to advocate for every artist and patron in Colorado Springs so that soon enough everyone’s back to holding their partner on the dance floor. 

Warm regards,
Jordan McHenry, Executive Director
