Denver dance company to teach and perform in Grand County

Cleo Parker Robinson is the founder of the dance company coming to Grand County next month.

The Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company is coming to Grand County next month to visit elementary schools, teach a free master class to community members and perform in Grand Lake.

With the help of the Denver Ballet Guild and fundraising by the community, the Denver-based dance company will share its passion for dance with Grand County.

“When we designed this program, we designed it for everyone to experience,” said Susan Struna, vice president of in-school programs at the Denver Ballet Guild. “This is something people requested and something we delivered. We’re just very excited to provide it.”

On Oct. 10, the company plans to visit Granby Elementary and Fraser Valley Elementary to put on a program for students.

The company will present a free master class for all skill levels at 10 a.m. Oct. 11 at the Grand Lake Center for ages 10 to adult. That evening, Squeaky B’s restaurant will be hosting the company for dinner and the community is invited to meet the dancers.

The performance by the company will be at 7 p.m. Oct. 12 at the Grand Lake Center. Tickets are $30 for adults and $15 for students. Buy them at Grand Mountain Banks in Granby, Fraser and Grand Lake and at the Cascades of the Rockies Book Store in Grand Lake.

“It’s taken a lot of wonderful collaboration to pull this off,” Struna said. “It’s going to be an amazing, amazing event.”

The dance company is a nonprofit organization based out of Denver that visits communities around the world with a mission of creative community development.
