Dear Friends of Dancing Spirit Community Arts Center,

You are cordially invited to join us at our ground breaking ceremony at our new location 465 Goddard Ave on April 13, 2022 at 11:00am

Over the last twelve years, Dancing Spirit Community Arts Center has been helping the communities of Ignacio, Bayfield, Durango, Aztec and Pagosa Springs through art programs and camps for children; classes and workshops for adults and families; by offering Ignacio's only art gallery and co-op; and through therapeutic arts at the Ignacio Schools, the Department of Justice and the Southern Ute Indian Tribe. During that time, we have had to move four times, and each time, we have lost a little bit of our identity as Ignacio's community arts center. Most recently, we been an integral part of helping pilot the ELHI Community Center, and although we are glad for the collaboration and experience, it's past time that we finally focus on building YOUR community arts center. We are so excited to announce that we are finally building a permanent home!

Once our new building is ready, we plan to restart and build up our art gallery with art openings and shows for professional and aspiring artists; add more classes and workshops and bring in live music, pottery and art demonstrations while continuing to offer our children's camps and therapeutic art programs. We may have worked with you or your organization in the past, and we are very thankful for your support you've given us. We are looking forward to our future collaborations, we would be so grateful to have you attend this momentous occasion.

 Kasey Correia, Executive Director
