Beth Carlson

Beth has enjoyed dance since her mother introduced her to it in Kansas City at age four. Following her dad’s career moves meant a few studios, culminating in an Afro-Caribbeandance company in Colorado Springs as a young adult. After completing degrees in education, the challenge of giving underserved children a performing arts experience became a goal. She began the Kids in Motion program as an after-school activity in 1977, and today continues this work enriching the students with CS Dance Theatre tickets to professional performances. It has been a pleasure to work as an officer with the talented Board members of Dance Theatre. She is excited about the upcoming new initiatives!

“As we reflect on a truly successful 42nd season, I want to express my sincere appreciation for the bedrock support we’ve received this year.  The Colorado Springs Dance Theatre is nothing without your devotion and generosity.”
