About the event

Colorado School of Dance (CSD) in conjunction with Dalton’s Moon Foundation is proud to present their annual fundraising show, Dance for a Difference on January 24, 2024 at Lone Tree Arts Center in Lone Tree, CO. Dance for a Difference started 16 years ago and has continued throughout the years to raise over hundreds of thousands towards various children’s medical issues. The current production showcases original choreography performed by CSD’s Blue Angel Poms Team and their Razzles, Showcase Performance and Artistic Performance Competition Teams, alongside essays written by students explaining what this show means to them. This year’s show theme is “Together We Rise.”

All proceeds from Dance for a Difference are given to Children’s Hospital Colorado to be used towards medical research with an emphasis in oncology. This cause was selected by Dalton’s Moon Foundation in memory of Dalton Luke Levine, a former CSD dancer. Levine was diagnosed in 2014 at age sixteen with adrenocortical carcinoma (ACC), a very rare and aggressive cancer of the adrenal gland. He battled valiantly through six surgeries, more than twenty rounds of chemo and radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and a clinical trial of an experimental drug. He died on December 13, 2016, at age eighteen. He is deeply missed by his dance family, yet his memory carried on through Dance for a Difference.

Colorado School of Dance has been a cornerstone of the Parker community for over 20 years and continues to be a place where people of all ages learn, create, inspire, and perform. It was founded by Owner and Director Lisa Tuska in 2002, and is supported by many longtime artistic staff members. CSD thrives on their mission of encouraging students to experience the world of dance while gaining high self-esteem, poise, and physical & social well-being. CSD’s staff is dedicated to providing quality instruction in a family-friendly and nurturing environment, where every dancer feels safe and supported.

Due to Fire Code and LTAC safety policies, every person attending a performance must have a ticket, including children sitting on laps and infants.
