CLC’s Erin is an extraordinary dancer, but maybe not quite as good at fixing things…help us hire professional architects, contractors and engineers so we can finish building a dressing room at The Citadel!

We’re entering the fifth week in our West Wing fundraising campaign, and have been blown away by the generosity and support we’ve received so far as we reach toward our $150,000 goal to build a room for dancers at The Citadel: Ross Centre for Dance.

Kind words from a recent donor: I am in awe of CLC’s resilience, commitment and passion for all that you do for the dance community and for Regent Park. You have made a difference in so many people’s lives, both in the arts and surrounding communities through endless hours of hard work and diligence towards progress and opportunity for all artists. I will always support you! I look forward to seeing CLC complete each goal one grand jeté at a time and I hope my donation will help Erin and future dancers prepare comfortably in the new dressing room that they deserve!

The West Wing will be a space for professionals including the dancers in this year’s Bright Nights series, the children in the Citadel Dance Program performing in their spring and winter recitals, independent artists and community members who perform in our theatre, and of course our very own Coleman Lemieux & Compagnie dancers to get ready to perform. Without this room dancers have to get ready for the stage in the office, or even at times in the stairway!

You can help by making a charitable donation of $500, and your name, or the name of your parent, sibling, loved one or whomever you want to honour, will be added on a brick on the wall.

With your help, The West Wing will open in the spring of 2017, and every artist and child using the room will forever witness the generosity of all the donors who made the construction of The West Wing a reality.
