“As a Colorado Springs native, I had the amazing good fortune to benefit from the generosity of the Dance Theatre. They made possible some of the important experiences of my early dance history. I am a product of this community and the richness of the Springs’ dance heritage resides close to my heart. I am inspired to usher Dance Alliance into this new chapter”
