Angel Tree 


This year, we have pledged to help two local families who have fallen on hard times.  We ask that you help where you can, so that we can make Christmas special for these families.  In the studio lobby, there are boxes set up for each family with their "wishes" printed on angels above the boxes.  If you can donate an item (or 2 or 3!), we ask that you remove the specific angel (before purchasing so we don't duplicate), and then place your gift in the correct family's box. Gifts can be wrapped, but don't have to be if you cannot. Thank you, in advance, for helping these families less fortunate than ourselves.

   If you have questions, please contact Miss Carrie via email.

CDC Alum, Connor Senning, to perform with JUNK

Connor Senning, alum of CDC, is now a full company member with Brian Sanders' JUNK!  Come out to see the company perform Sanctuary in the Philly Fringe Festival (Philadelphia, PA) September 3rd-18th, 2010.  Discounted and group rate tickets available! We would love to get a group to go up together!  Call or email the studio if you are interested!




This is where the lost take charge.

Take a wall fourteen feet high and one hundred and twenty feet long and make it into a stage. This is the set for Sanctuary, a dance of intense movement, ritual, and mistaken assumptions about the past from celebrated choreographer and Festival favorite Brian Sanders. Sometime in the future, a group of people inhabit a blown out, old industrial architectural relic from the past. They have chosen this place as a safe-haven, looking to recreate something from the past that is missing from their lives: a previous, purer way of life—the ever elusive sense of “the way things used to be.”

Sanders turns this wide visual expanse into an exquisitely choreographed mix of danger, force, and beauty, as his lost tribe brings to life a vision of what this place once was, with a new set of rules and rituals.

"Sanders, a former dancer with Momix, is witty, deadpan and a master of the absurd—but he also remembers the dance element."
Ellen Dunkel, The Philadelphia Inquirer
