"BOO"-GIE THON 2020

This has certainly been the most challenging year in recent memory.    Who would have  thought we would be teaching dance classes in masks and microphones, keeping dancers in assigned spots for an entire class and keeping our youngest dancers in “pool noodle nooks!”   

 

Planning our 37th annual “Nutcracker” has been even more of a challenge.   While we can’t predict what will happen this week, much less in December, we are trying to give our dancers a sense of normalcy and an anticipated performance - somewhere and somehow.    We’ve come up with some exciting plans, and even an “adjustment” of the “Nutcracker” storyline.

 

Fundraising has also been tricky - it’s hard to ask for help when there are so many incredibly worthy causes.    So we are trying to convert our annual Dance-A-Thon for the Las Cruces Chamber Ballet to something positive for our dancers, while still being able to raise funds for the basic necessities of the LCCB (warehouse rent and utilities).    Our “BOO”-GIE THON will be on Halloween (October 31, 2020) from 12 Noon to 3pm.   We will also have prizes:    One for the dancer who raises the most money for the LCCB; and one via a drawing (passwords from each class give you one entry!)

 

You can sign up and participate in the "BOO"-GIE THON by Zoom for a $25 donation to the Las Cruces Chamber Ballet.
