Fundraising by Classical Repertory Dance Ensemble: CRDE 2022-2023 Season Kick-off

Help us get our 2022-2023 season off to a good start! We are grateful for any amount that will help ease the burden on our dancers and help us stay engaged in our community.

Classical repertoire dance ensemble (CRDE) is a Washington, DC-based, women-led ballet company made up of adult dancers. The company strives for artistic integrity in its programming, which includes a mix of styles centered on classical and contemporary ballet. Our dancers come from a variety of backgrounds and have all found ways to maintain their commitment to dance while working day shifts and juggling other responsibilities. CRDE actively participates in the DC arts community, rehearsing at local studios and commissioning work from local choreographers.

We are delighted to return for our 2022-2023 season after two seasons missed due to Covid. After having to cancel our Spring 2020 performances with just two weeks notice, we missed out on our biggest and most important annual revenue stream: ticket sales. During the pandemic, we are committed to offering our dancers free online lessons. As such, we start this season in a position of greatest financial need. To ease the burden on our dancers, to be able to continue working with amazing DC-area choreographers and other partners, and to allow us to continue doing what we love, we turn to you: our friends , our families and our fans.

Any amount makes a huge difference. We are so grateful for your support!
