Life/Art Dance Ensemble creates and provides professional dance and music to Denver Metro communities through artistic collaboration, positive outreach, and education.
Life/Art Dance Ensemble received 501(c)3 status in March of 2009. The company was created, in part, to provide low-income senior citizens along the Front Range with the opportunity to experience live professional dance performances. This program, entitled Cultural Experiences for Seniors, has reached over 1,700 seniors since its inception. In 2010, the company began producing its own annual contemporary dance performances, collaborating with other artists to produce unique experiences in dance. Of note, Life/Art was approached in 2012 by composer Russell Podgorsek, who was eager to collaborate with professional dancers for an original piece. The resulting complete work from this collaboration was later accepted into the GAMMA-UT New Music Showcase at the University of Texas at Austin. This collaboration opened the door to many other fruitful connections, and Life/Art now creates two annual collaborative contemporary productions.
Life/Art has also been invited to perform in productions and at events throughout the state and abroad. Notable guest performances include the Denver Art Museum’s Dance on the Plaza event in 2016, the Botanic Garden’s SCFD Showcase (2016 - 2018), the City of Denver’s October 3rd, 2017 press conference, and the Denver Museum of Nature and Science’s DioramART exhibit for 2017’s “Night at the Museum,” as well as their 2018 "Dia del Nino." Life/Art was also represented at the Dairy Arts Center’s Women in Classical Music Soundscape concert, and in Prague at the American Music Festival in collaboration with Stratus Chamber Orchestra. In May of 2017, the Director of Life/Art was
recognized as a 7everyday Hero.
In 2014, Life/Art collaborated with a videographer and a composer to create its first
dance film. In 2015, Life/Art created a first of its kind dance film festival, entitled “Life in
Motion: A Colorado Dance Film Festival,” catering to local Colorado film artists who
work with movement and dance for the camera. Please visit our press page for downloadable promotional photos.
