Announcement About Nutcracker 2020
MESSAGE TO OUR DANCE KIDS FAMILIES AND DONORS:
From our Founder: Carol Richmond
After great reflection and consideration of the health and well-being of the community; our dancers, families, audience members, donors and the hundreds of local businesses who have generously supported our programming for twenty-seven years, I have made the difficult decision to cancel Nutcracker 2020.
In these times of heightened anxiety and an unknown future, I believe in the vital role the arts play in our lives: they nourish our hearts and minds, calm our doubts, teach us valuable lessons and critical skills, and help us create community. The community of Dance Kids of Monterey County will not forget, and we are resolved not to lose sight of what connects us.
Many of our dancer’s parents have an uncertain job future due to Covid-19. It is vital that our focus turns from a production to scholarship requests and granting opportunity. With summer programs in question, fall class size questions as social distancing is a part of our lives, training dancers will be challenging. With your help we will reach families most in need. We ask you to support a dancer with your donation.
We encourage you to write a check to one of the following sponsor organizations:
