Sensory Friendly Nutcracker Performance
The 2021 Sensory-Friendly Nutcracker was performed on December 5th at the Ridgefield Theater Barn. This production was specifically designed for students with sensory sensitivities and featured a more relaxed setting with adjusted sound, stage and house lighting.
The CDS Dance 4All Abilities students performed their version of The Nutcracker with the help of some of the advanced ballet dancers, known as “Dance Buddies.”
CDS parents “filled the house” to celebrate all the dancers. Special thanks is given to the Dance 4All Abilities teachers, Patrice Logan and Debra MacDonald, who were able to make this festive day such a success. We also wish to thank the Ridgefield Theater Barn for their hospitality and free tech support. CDS salutes you all!
"Participating in the Nutcracker was a wonderful experience, it was the first time I had ever been on stage or part of a big production."
