Dancers, drinks and fashion!

Thursday, September 06, 2012
Sounds like one memorable night to me. This is what I love about the performance industry, we work hard, very hard, but we get to have fun! Tomorrow night, September 6 the party starts at 6 p.m. What party? We call it Denver Fashion en Pointe. It’s a Colorado Ballet fashion show, where nine of our ballerinas will take the runway wearing Denver’s most fashionable boutique clothing. It will take place in the Chloe courtyard, one of Denver’s best upscale nightclubs. Your ticket will include an open bar of Skinnygirl cocktails and wine from 6-7 p.m. and tickets are only $35!

Here is what attendees will see during the runway show:
  • A.Line Boutique in Greenwood Village has more than 20 designers and was voted as one of the country’s best boutiques by Elle Magazine.
  • Blue Ruby in Larimer Square and Main Street Littleton, hosts contemporary labels along with home gifts and décor. According to 5280 magazine, it’s a chic shop offering an accessible price for the designer selection.
  • Delish Demure in the Denver Tech Center has fun fashions and accessories for style-driven women. They also offer fashion consultation and wardrobe design assistance.
  • Gracie’s on South Pearl is colorful and flattering, they have a handful of top designers in clothes and accessories.
  • Rebel started in California but brings the newest looks from top designers to the Greenwood Village area.
  • Last but not least, Moxie, also in Greenwood Village, provides the latest casual trends in a relaxed environment, for any girl who has ‘moxie.’
The event will also include prize drawings and admission to Chloe Discotheque after the show at 10 p.m. Enjoy a Thursday out and experience all that Denver has to offer, fashion, dance and fun and help support Colorado Ballet!

Modern Movement: Innovations in Dance and Painting

Tuesday, July 10, 2012
Join us on July 12, 2012 for a discussion between Clyfford Still Museum Director Dean Sobel and Gil Boggs, Artistic Director at Colorado Ballet. The Directors will be making connections between contemporary art and modern dance. 

Click here for more information about this event.

The discussion will touch on Boggs’ personal stories from his years in the studio with ground-breaking choreographers as a Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre in New York, and the history of modern dance legends, such as Martha Graham and her protégés Lester Horton, Merce Cunningham and John Cage, Agnes de Mille, Twyla Tharp, and Paul Taylor.

Martha Graham’s “Night Journey”

Merce Cunningham’s “Variations V”

Similar to the Abstract Expressionists, Graham’s work often focused on human behavior and intense grief. She used emotional expression and sharp, contracted technique to create an avant garde form of dance based on real life and the events that shaped her world, a revolutionary departure from the perfect lines and traditional themes of classical story ballets.

Colorado Ballet is proud to feature great works by contemporary choreographers, as well as new dance works, each season. Spring 2013’s Masterworks bill will include Rite of Spring, George Balanchine’s Theme and Variations, and a world premiere work by Val Caniparoli.
