Living Legends of Dance in Colorado

Since 2004, the annual "Legends of Dance in Colorado" honors individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to dance. Starting with the untimely death of Freidann Parker, co-founder of Colorado Ballet, we realized it was time to preserve the rich dance heritage of Colorado.

In order to preserve the history, a video interview is recorded of all honorees, and, with relevant photos and memorabilia, all are placed in Special Collections.  Some interviews are available online now; others will follow.

Click here to nominate a potential Legend of Dance, by submitting a brief bio and contact information.

The celebration for the 2016 Legends of Dance is Sunday, October 16th at 4 to 6 pm in the Special Events Room in the Anderson Academic Commons.

$25 for dance library patrons, $30 for all others.

 For more information or to reserve.
