Dancing For All Of Us

Cleo Parker Robinson Dance

“Dance is the hidden language of the soul.” ~ Martha Graham. Dance is indeed an expressive language of the heart, body and soul. We’re so fortunate that Colorado is the home of three world class dance companies — Cleo Parker Robinson Dance, the Colorado Ballet and the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet — and the renowned Vail Dance Festival hosted by the Vail Valley every August.

In addition to these innovative, powerhouse companies, there are a number of up-and-coming companies who are crafting unique experiences to share with Colorado audiences: T2 Dance Project, Boulder Ballet, Wonderbound and Danse Etoile.

And true to artists’ commitment to connecting with their audiences, many of Colorado’s dance companies are teaching free virtual classes, hosting live discussions with their dancers and sharing performances from their homes.

The Color Wheel Project, T2 Dance Company

The Color Wheel Project is an arts production that demonstrates how visual arts, music, and dance can intersect while also enabling community connections. The show will premiere at the Dairy Center for the Arts on September 18–19, 2020. This live webinar will feature the four T2 company dancers who choreographed the show. Hear then talk about their work, creative process, inspiration, and have the chance to ask them questions.

The Color Wheel Project will incorporate visual art from Boulder Valley Elementary Students, dance from T2 Dance Company and music from local musicians, Tyler Adams and Caton Sollenberger. Company Dancers Haley Andrews, Kate Gomez Moore, Claire Kendall, and Veronica Goldberg choreographed the show based on selected artwork from the elementary students’ submissions. T2 is collaborating with local musicians to present a unique score for the production with a smooth jazz flavor.

Project Wonder presented by Wonderbound

We are in L.O.V.E. with the new Project Wonder virtual dance series! With dances choreographed and performed inside their homes, Project Wonder features the uber talented dancers from Wonderbound, a contemporary ballet company located in Denver that lives at the convergence of tradition and innovation, vulnerability and courage, and intimacy and openness. So far, Public Domain starring Damian Patterson and danced to Salt Water Blues by Bessie Smith is our favorite. Check out the other performances here and follow Wonderbound’s Instagram page for new Project Wonder performances.

Wonderbound’s dancers are also teaching super fun lessons online — Dance Along! makes dancing accessible for all of us.
