Expressing Gratitude through Poetry and Dance

Join us for this annual Thanksgiving-time event featuring poetry readings from the picture book Our Farm: By the Animals of Farm Sanctuary by author Maya Gottfried, with a dance-along led by studio director Cynthia King and music from singer/songwriter Michael Harren. All proceeds from book sales are donated to Farm Sanctuary.

Families are invited to sponsor a rescued turkey through Farm Sanctuary’s “Adopt-A-Turkey” project and see their donation matched by CKDS. Each sponsor will receive a beautiful certificate with a color photo and details about their new turkey friend.
