Cross-Cultural Dance Resources (CCDR) is a non-profit dance research organization in the United States, formed in 1981 and based in Flagstaff, Arizona. It maintains a museum and library devoted to the study of dance, with over 15,000 resources including artwork, audiovisuals, books, clippings, monographs, and periodicals. It also produces the CCDR Newsletter (ISSN 1069-7241), which is issued three times per year and provides information on dance research, news, and upcoming events. In 2000, the organization was given a special preservation award on the "100 Irreplaceable Dance Treasures" list by the Dance Heritage Coalition, as well as a grant from the White House Millennium Council, as part of "Save America's Treasures".
Founded in 1981, the CCDR's mission is to promote dance resources, preserve and research dance materials, and foster a dynamic environment for dance events. It provides consultation on dance theory and methods, ethnomusicology, cultural dynamics and ethics. The organization sponsors concerts and visiting artists and lectures. CCDR also maintains a museum of musical instruments and costumes. In 1989, the organization's director was Joann Kealiinohomoku, known for her 1970 essay, "An Anthropologist Looks at Ballet as a Form of Ethnic Dance."
The CCDR archive includes material of Gertrude Prokosch Kurath, and Eleanor King. In April 2008, Elsie Ivancich Dunin, who serves as the organization's vice-president, made a $1.15 million gift to Herberger College of the Arts to provide for the CCDR collection's permanent care and curation.
The CCDR receives partial funding from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Arizona Commission on the Arts. It has a library which is open to the public, two days each week, and is also searchable online.
In 2000, the organization was given a special preservation award on the "100 Irreplaceable Dance Treasures" list by the Washington DC-based Dance Heritage Coalition, and was one of the grant recipients from President Clinton's White House Millennium Council, "Save America's Treasures", to preserve the Gertrude Kurath, Eleanor King, and Kealiinohomoku Collections.
