Curtains Up Pagosa turns its profit back into the schools, community and kids of Pagosa in many ways.

One of our “give-backs” is in the form of a dance scholarship called Cindy’s Dance, in memory of Cindy Gustafson, a lifetime supporter of the arts and our students.

Our 2016 crop of students was taught by the talented Casey Crow, local dance teacher and choreographer, gifted writer, philanthropist, hero and volunteer. We are grateful to Crow for her service to our kids, the grace of her dance and the fullness of her heart.
