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. Interviews are available online in our digital repository and can be reached through the links below.
The Carson Brierly Giffin Dance Library is looking for nominees for the 2017 'Legends of Dance in Colorado.' Nominations are due by February 28th.
