Tragedy, Loss, Hope, Triump

By Nicole Drouin Amayo

Although this thank you may be a bit late, we want to share with you what the first year in our new studio looks like. We have made a video that tells our story of tragedy, loss, hope and triumph much more expressively than we could do through words alone.Thanks to you, we are not only back in business but thriving. Your generosity has inspired us to “pay it forward.”Our show this year, entitled “Our Town”,was a benefit concert with all proceeds (over $2200) going to The Spotlight dance studio in Creston, Iowa. They were hit by a tornado in April and are still repairing and restoring what was lost.

We hope you enjoy the video. Thank you for your kindness and generosity. It is appreciated and will never be forgotten. If you’re ever in Joplin, please give me a call and stop by the studio. You’ll be an honored guest!

Monica McGowan

It is with great sadness that we share the news that Monica McGowan, who taught Caribbean dance at the CCA Summer Program for many years passed away at her home in Jamaica on August 22 after having suffered a stroke at the end of May. Monica was a founding member and former principal dancer of the National Dance Theater Company (NDTC) of Jamaica.

She was a long-time member of the CCA who taught many summers at our International Summer Program. She was a cherished friend of many and a very gracious woman who will be sorely missed.
