January 25, 26 and 27, 2019
Our next performances will be with Davis Contemporary Dance Company which showcases the choreography of director Terrell Davis. Hannah Kahn Dance Company members will be guest artists on the program “Elevated” on January 25, 26 and 27, 2019 at the Elaine Wolf Theater (JCC). They will perform Kahn’s dances “Closing In” and “Take It All In”. Choreography by Terrell Davis, Rachael Harding and Aubrey Klinger will complete the program.
We are traveling to New York!
The Denver-based Hannah Kahn Dance Company returns to New York for the first time since 1988 with performances March 8 and 9, 2019, at the Mark Morris Dance Center.
“There is no classifying her choreographic idiom,” the Washington Post said of Kahn. “She’s created a dance language of her own.” The Chicago Tribune characterized the troupe’s appearance there as “the most interesting modern dance to be performed on a Chicago stage in many months.”
At each upcoming performance the company (which counts Mark Morris and Kate Johnson as alumni) will present seven works representing Kahn’s creative output over four decades. After graduating from the Juilliard School in 1972, Kahn presented her work in New York continuously until 1988 when she relocated to Denver. Since then, she has been a central figure in Colorado’s dance scene, receiving consistent support and public funding .
In 2009 Kahn was honored as a “Living Legend of Dance” by the Carson Brierly Dance Library, and in 2012 she was honored by the Colorado Ballet in their “Tribute to Women in Dance in Colorado”. In 2018 her choreography was chosen for the Presenting Denver Dance Festival.

Inside the Orchestra
Watch for our participation with Inside the Orchestra. We are again performing as part of their fall and spring Tiny Tots programs during their 2018-19 season.
Tiny Tots gets children truly “inside the orchestra” by seating the audience on the floor and surrounding them with our 30+ piece professional orchestra.
Designed for children six and under, Tiny Tots is a 45-minute program that gives young ones the chance to interact with the conductor and the musicians and learn about the instruments in the process. Children are encouraged to respond to different elements of the music, from thinking about how music makes them feel to getting on their feet and moving. They are treated to up-close-and-personal demos by various instruments, introduced to musical concepts, emotional understanding of the arts, and artistic expression. The music selection, design, and scripting of Tiny Tots is geared to connect very young children with music – physically, emotionally, and mentally. Children are also encouraged to take a closer look at the instruments and ask questions of the musicians after the concert has concluded. Every Tiny Tots event includes guest performers from some of our cultural partner organizations.
