Letter: Grateful dancers
May 19, 2017
"Dancers Dancing — a Legacy," which was presented by the Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts on May 12 and 13, was a joyful celebration.
The skill and dedication of more than 100 dancers, ages 3 to 17 years, was presented with spirit and happiness and filled the Jeannie Miller Theatre at Glenwood Springs High School with smiles, laughter and admiration.
Kudos to the dancers. We are very proud of your strength, confidence, grace, expression and passion for the art form of dance.
A very special thanks to our seven dance instructors/choreographers/dance artists who taught the dance students and who created inventive choreography. Our lighting designer, stage manager and sound engineers made the show an exciting and professional production. A very special honor goes to Brie Carmer for managing the Center for the Arts under difficult circumstances.
And — to our amazing community — thank you very much for your support. The dinner Friday evening and all the food donated for concessions was so appreciated. It made the event even more special to audience and to all involved. The center is especially thankful for the financial benefit derived. And a huge thanks to the staff and administration of Glenwood Springs High School.
This production could not occur without the spirit of volunteerism that makes Glenwood Springs a unique and lovely place to live. I am grateful and proud to be part of this community. Many thanks to all who stepped forward to make the event one to remember.
