Legends of Dance in Colorado

Since 2004, the annual "Legends of Dance in Colorado" honors individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to dance in our state. 

In order to preserve the history, an oral history is recorded of all honorees, and with relevant photos and memorabilia, all are placed in The Dance Archive. Interviews are available online in our digital repository.
