CSDA, get a cup coffee and get ready for this read! โ˜•๏ธ ๐ŸŒˆ
First off, if you havenโ€™t heard, @alihoopercsda has been working hard the last few weeks at the @candlelightpavilion putting up Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. If you know this show, you know that it is a BEAST!!! But get this, this cast only had 30 hours to put this show together ๐Ÿคฏ๐Ÿคฏ and they are SLAYING! There is no Joseph like Aliโ€™s Joseph!
Now, did you take a second to zoom in and see the ALUMNI LINEUP weโ€™ve got going on here?!
CSDA is representing on the candlelight stage!!
First up we have the AMAZING @amber_d_wright! Her vocals are gracing the stage as the Narrator, melting our hearts and blowing our minds with her insane renditions of the songs in this show. Amber played Mrs. Potiphar at MHS when Ali choreographed the show back in 2002! Sheโ€™s a STAR! ๐ŸŒŸ
๐ŸŒˆ
Next we have the amazing @kelsibarbata! Kelsi is back on stage as one of the wives AND the Apache dancer AND keeping the cast clean as the Dance Captain! She has always shown expectational leadership skills and she is going ABOVE AND BEYOND to help this cast nail this choreo!
๐ŸŒˆ
Next we have a nonstop performer and all-around powerhouse on stage, @berlynn226! Bea is also playing one of the wives AND she is blessing the stage with her gorgeous high notes as the Angel!
๐ŸŒˆ
A more recent addition to the cast (and when we say recent we meanโ€ฆflew in on Sunday and had 4 rehearsals to learn the show before opening for an audience, recent ๐Ÿคฏ) we have @kyliemolnar! Candlelight was in a pinch a week before opening, having one of the wives drop the show and they gave Kylie a call! She flew in and learned JOSEPH in 4 daysโ€ฆ4 DAYS! What a trill! (Thatโ€™s showbiz people!) GET ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผIT ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸผGIRL๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ
๐ŸŒˆ
Now our next alum is not on stage performing, but she spent hours with Ali choreographing and staging this wonderful show! @emilygracetucker is a saint and a jack of all trades! She can literally do it all!
๐ŸŒˆ
Joseph opens tonight! Get your tickets and SEE THIS SHOW! Live theater is back and we are ready to support the arts! Comment below the date you are coming and letโ€™s cheer on our CSDA family!

For those of you who donโ€™t know who this magical human is, this is Tanner Arden. Tanner sang and danced his heart away with us for 9 years before graduating class of 2013. Since graduating, Tanner has continued to support CSDA every year, doing or giving whatever he can to continue to love on his dance home. He is hands down one of the most giving humans on this planet, always putting others before himself.
Why are we posting about him now, you ask? Well, Tan is getting ready to go into surgery Oct. 5th to donate one of his kidneys to his grandfather. We are in awe of you, Tan. You have the most genuine heart. You are constantly checking in on the people you love and brightening our days. You are the perfect example of kindness. We are so lucky to have you a part of our CSDA family forever!
โ™ฅ๏ธ
We hope that all of our dancers grow to be as giving and kind as you. You are such a role model the younger generation (and to the older generations as well)! Thank you for being you. โ™ฅ๏ธ
CSDA fam, please keep Tanner in your thoughts and prayers! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป
