Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop

August 27th, 2020

  The Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop gives dancers the chance to train with a professional company as well as work with some of Boulder’s best dance teachers. The youngest dancers in the workshop are fifteen, but most are college age or older. This is not a beginning level workshop. The classes are geared towards pre-professional dancers, but as long as a dancer has had a few years of technical training, the classes should be manageable.

Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop Performance

August 18th, 2017

  The Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop culminated in a student performance of work choreographed both by students and instructors in the workshop on August 4th. The workshop’s performance differed from CU Boulder’s normal style of performed work in that it focused more on the artistry of entertainment based dance. However, there were larger themes present in many of the pieces, but even if an audience member did not pick up on the theme, the dance was still fun to watch. This was a good choice for the audience the workshop attracts: both parents and members of the dance community.   Here... Read More
