We are honored to have a long partnership with Newman Center for the Performing Arts who for many years has arranged for dance companies performing works in their season to provide guest artists to work with DSA Dancers. In The Studio this month will be Black Grace.
Black Grace will be performing at Newman Center April 5. With their distinctive dynamism sparked by Samoan and New Zealand heritage, the Black Grace dancers take possession of the stage—and own the audience—from the first moment. And they never let go. Eloquent yet elemental, athletic yet spiritual, they mix their cultural heritage with the contemporary choreography of Artistic Director Neil Ieremia to conquer the stage. Expect a highly physical performance, rich in the storytelling traditions of the South Pacific and expressed with raw power, unique beauty, and finesse. DSA Dancers and their families are offered $15 tickets (with free parking) to the performances by visiting newmantix.com/promo and entering the code DSA15TIX.
On Wednesday, March 8, the Dance and Movement Department welcomed Barton Cowperthwaite of An American in Paris In The Studio…
Mr. Cowperthwaite (Returning Soldier, Lise’s Ballet Partner, Ensemble, u/s Jerry) is a Denver School of the Arts Alumni, and has been working as an artist in NYC since 2014. He’s danced for Lar Lubovitch, Pontus Lidberg, and recently starred in the Lifetime dance film Center Stage: Dance Camp. He’s incredibly excited about his musical theater debut! www.bartonc.com
Focusing on repetoire from An American in Paris, Barton Cowperthwaite spent the day working with DSA 8th-grade Dance and Theatre students.
We are honored to have a long partnership with Newman Center for the Performing Arts who for many years has arranged for dance companies performing works in their season to provide guest artists to work with DSA Dancers. In The Studio this month will be Aspen Santa Fe Ballet.
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, returning for their 7th appearance, will be performing Silent Ghost and other works at Newman Center February 25 & 26. Each performance is different because the company’s vision is for their virtuoso dancers to perform new works by a wide variety of choreographers. A European choreographic sensibility, matched by American athleticism, joy, and grace, forges ASFB’s pioneering creative aesthetic in the field of contemporary dance. DSA Dancers and their families are offered $15 tickets (with free parking) to the performances by visiting newmantix.com/promo and entering the code DSA15TIX.
This collaboration will continue throughout the year when DSA Dance will welcome Black Grace (April) In The Studio and this company performs in the Newman Center Presents season (with $15 tickets and free parking available now: DSA15TIX).

Please join us November 17, 18, & 19 in the Kay Schomp Theatre for our Fall Concert, IMPRESSIONS. Tickets ($16/20-adults, $12/14-seniors & students), are available online.
IMPRESSIONS features the work of the department’s choreographic curriculum. In preparation for the show, Beginning Level Students create group choreography in collaboration with dance faculty mentors. This work allows for an in depth study of specific choreographic form and fundamental dance elements while allowing students to generate their own unique movement phrases. Intermediate Level Students work as teams in a problem solving process. Given a collective assignment with individual responsibilities, these students shape their dances to assigned music selections. Advanced Level Students collaborate to create original choreography as well as original costumes, music, and lighting. DSA dancers also perform works of guest artists.
