Hannah Kahn Dance Company presents

“Juxtaposition” and Other Dances

The Hannah Kahn Dance Company will present “Juxtaposition” and Other Dances at the Dairy Arts Center on June 22 and 23, 2019. The eleven company dancers will bring to fruition seven works including a premiere set to music of Denver’s own Chappell Kingsland, composer and faculty member at the Lamont School of Music. The program will also include Kahn’s 2018 work Juxtaposition, set to music of Daniel Kellogg, a professor at the College of Music at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Choreographer Hannah Kahn is working with the dancers to recreate several dances from the last few decades including Concerto (1993), excerpts from Over Under Around and Through (2006) and Complete the Circuit (2009). Kahn works with her notes from the period when she originally choreographed the dances and videos of the original cast to painstakingly bring the material back to life. Small changes and improvements are incorporated as the dancers work to make the movement material their own, and the old dances are reborn.

Go for Broke” (1988) and 3 excerpts from “Constellations” (2001), which were staged for Denver performances in 2018, will complete the program.

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.
