I'm on the board at a local community theatre, and I've seen three performances at CDF in the past two years. I was very favorably impressed. The kids not only showed talent in their performances, but they were also very friendly in meeting and greeting the audience. They also helped run concessions in the lobby before the shows and at intermission, which I imagine helps them realize how much work and dedication it takes to keep the arts afloat.

Because organizations like CDF support and train artists of the next generation, there's a bright future for the local arts in Birmingham.

I love how CDF just keeps on keeping on! They are a venerable institution in an under-served, historic neighborhood and have managed to expand their services beyond just children, as the name may imply. CDF deserves more support as they provide a vital link between the artistic community and the public through dance.
