About

Jasmine Wright & Kirby Harrell
Jasmine Wright & Kirby Harrell

Principal Dancers of Daurden Dance Company, Jasmine Wright & Kirby Harrell debut as Clara and The Nutcracker in The Classic Christmas Story. Daurden Dance Company Celebrates Artists of Color in A Contemporary Nutcracker, with dancers performing in these roles for the first time. 

The dance community is open, beautiful and accepting of talented dancers, but often doesn't consider artists of color for principal roles. Artistic Director and Choreographer Cassandra Daurden seeks to change that and continues to pursue a colorful agenda in all of her works. Dance and storytelling is about all of us. Representing the arts is an honor and we have a responsibility to celebrate each other and bond our human experience.

Risks and challenges

With Artistic Productions, especially in Los Angeles, challenges can arise in funding a project. Daurden Dance Company and Daurden Arts is nestled in a great community of supporters and artistic partners. The businesses, families and schools in our community will continue to help us pursue additional fundraising to reach our goal for this project. If we raise more than our goal we will use the funds for our 2017 Project 'BitterSweet Love.' The Nominated Hollywood Fringe Festival Show, is a story telling of relationships in love and all of its complications. This show is Inclusive of the LGBT community and supports outreach, especially to young students in school celebrating their difference.
