Each generation of dance artists builds upon the technical foundation that was taught to them by their mentors and teachers. Over time, dance techniques and styles change, grow, and evolve. The current generation of dancers and choreographers are growing upon the shoulders of great teachers and choreographers of the 20th century.
Arvada Center Dance Theatre choreographers reach back in time to create works that are inspired and influenced by their favorite 20th-century choreographers. Among the greats that inspired this concert are: Lester Horton, Alvin Ailey, Luigi, George Balanchine, Martha Grahm, Gus Giordano, Jerome Robbins, and Frederick Ashton. Sit back and enjoy how the greats still influence our young artists today.
