High Performance Dance Theatre performs cabaret at The Wheeler

High Performance Dance Theatre will perform at The Wheeler Opera House in Aspen for one night only on Saturday, March 29. They will be presenting Music, Joy, Dance – An Evening at the Cabaret! with the accompaniment of live music by The Key of Joy and vocalists. The production has received accolades from audiences on the Front Range and Chicago area.

“It’s a fun, sassy, entertaining evening of professional quality dance and music,” artistic director Kim Lang said. “We’re excited to bring Cabaret to the high country.”

Principal dancer Teri English is a graduate of Roaring Fork High School. She studied with various dance teachers locally, pursued dance education at Colorado State University, and earned a degree in Performing Arts. English is now the school director at Canyon Concert Dance Center in Fort Collins and has continued her training with many master dance teachers. She choreographs and dances extensively on the Front Range, training dozens of award-winning students.

“It’s inspiring to return to the Roaring Fork Valley to share my passion for dance with local students and on the stage,” English said. “I hope to see my former schoolmates, students, friends — as well as the public — in the audience at this joyful, high-energy performance.”

The nonprofit High Performance Dance Theatre is headquartered in Fort Collins. Since 1996 it has combined dance and modern technology to provide high-quality dance training and productions, while increasing the community’s knowledge of the arts. Collaborations between musicians, visual artists, choreographers and dancers create innovative performances on the stage.

The group produces several professional productions each year, and also facilitates dance residencies in public schools in Colorado. The company has performed in the Roaring Fork Valley several times and has provided dance residencies in the Roaring Fork School District for 16 years. Students from Basalt Middle School, who participated in the weeklong residency in November 2013, have been invited to perform in one piece in Music, Joy, Dance –An Evening at the Cabaret!

This performance is being sponsored in part locally by First Bank of Aspen and Glenwood Springs; Balcomb & Green P.C. of Aspen and Glenwood Springs; and many local friends of dance.
