Culture is available right here in Glenwood Springs.

“Under the Harvest Moon,” a benefit in support of the Danse Arts Theatre Company’s upcoming season, will be held at 5:30 p.m. Oct. 27, at the Hotel Colorado. The exciting event includes a silent auction, dinner, live music and entertainment. Dori Light and the Ronning family will provide chamber music on piano, violin and cello during dinner in the Devereux Room.

David Taylor, founder of the David Taylor Dance Theatre in Denver and adjunct faculty member with Colorado State University Dance Department, will be the keynote speaker.

Taylor taught 30 students in ballet courses from Aug. 6 through Aug. 18 at the Glenwood Dance Academy.

The Danse Arts Theatre Company dancers and Glenwood Dance Academy students will perform excerpts from the performance at Aspen’s Wheeler Opera House in May, including ballet and character as well as jazz, tap and modern dance. A demonstration of swing dancing will also be featured.

Ninety items, including porcelain dolls, artwork, rounds of golf at Aspen Glen, a full session of Glenwood Dance Academy dance lessons, massages and leather jackets are on the block as silent auction items.

All proceeds will support the Danse Arts Theatre Company in its third season, beginning with “The Enchanted Christmas Party,” performed Dec. 7-9 at the Roaring Fork High School auditorium. The company will also perform at the annual Christmas lighting ceremony at the Hotel Colorado in November. The Danse Arts Theater and Glenwood Dance Academy students will perform at Glenwood Springs High School in June of 2008, and there is a possibility the dance company will perform at the Wheeler Opera House in March.

The Danse Arts Theatre Company is a nonprofit organization that operates as a stand-alone performing arts group. The name “Danse Arts” is taken from the French spelling and pronunciation.

Glenwood Dance Academy is a limited liability company, owned and operated by DeAnna Anderson. The academy offers dance instruction for all age groups in all forms of dance, including ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip hop, salsa, ballroom and character. Instructors are all professionally trained dancers, and many still dance with DATC.

The Dance Academy instructors are Anderson, owner; Anne-Marie Kelly; Dina Duckworth; Lindsay Hoffman; Amanda Kubby; Lauren McDonnell; Johnna Modene; Danielle Yost; Charlie and Susan Dahl; Jennifer Brown; Brandi Wittwer; David Light; and student instructors Stephanie Grange; Nicole Zinn; and Brianne Jones.
