Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts expands dance offerings

We have been expanding our dance program horizons over the summer. Glenwood Springs Center for the Arts has always been a community gathering place to dance and express through heartfelt movement. It is a place for beginners and masters alike to learn and excel in the dance arts. In the last year, more than 250 students and countless guests have joined in the dance community here. We believe accessibility, not exclusivity is the key ingredient.Our professional dance education team offers beginner, intermediate and advanced classes in ballet, tap, jazz and modern. We have hip-hop, dance dogs, breakdancing, belly dancing, baby boogie and even a bilingual class in salsa exercise to round out our holistic program. People have been known to break into spontaneous sambas at our artist receptions. We never thought so many dancers would bust a move through here. Yes, I even think I saw YOU bringing out your inner Chippendale!Now with great pride we invite dancers of all levels of proficiency and dance forms to attend the auditions for our ColoradoWest Dance Company. Erinn Kelly, our dance director, with a master’s in dance education from CU, brings her expertise and vibrant contemporary energy to inspire the new group. Each member of our dance staff brings a different area of passion to the ensemble and looks forward to presenting at least six performances in 2005 both locally and throughout the valley.The center will hold auditions Saturday, Sept. 11. This year we have formed a junior division from 9- 14-year-olds. The senior division is 15- 25-year-olds. There will be no Saturday practices or classes for the members during the year, as they need the weekends with their family and friends for other activities. In addition, this year, the seniors will be paid a stipend for performing made possible through public programming grants.Please join us.
