I've been to two of HKDC's performances now and can't wait until the next Fall show. The choreography is awesome and Hannah deserves every award she's earned! The company's dancers are top notch! You can see the joy in their faces as they perform and their obvious love of dance.

I was very impressed with the dancers and their interactions with our students. The material and time frame were very age-appropriate. I loved how they got our students involved while maintaining a balance of crowd control. I think they could have probably gotten away with some more audience participation because they held the students' interest and behavior so well. We will definitely have them back as soon as possible.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The presentation was very age-appropriate. Many professionals do not understand how to work their ideas for a younger audience to understand. Hannah Kahn did a great job of presenting at an elementary level without "dumbing" it down. Thank you!

Ways to make it better...

If there were more audience participation. Like I said, they worked so well with the students that they could have probably done more audience participation and the students would have still be largely respectful.

hannah and her company have performed at our elementary school several times. the children and staff were delighted with the performances and eagerly await her next visit. hannah is very generous and performs with no charge to the schol. if this were not the case, the children would not have the exposure to such wonderful cultural enrichment.

I've followed the Hannah Kahn Dance Company for over 15 years and I it is truly one of Denver's arts treasures. Inventive choreography, athleticism and fine-tuned musicality are trademarks of this troope. In addition to their compelling concerts, the company provides fabulous outreach performances for students in schools throughout Denver, bringing this art form to life for so many children.

watching delighted children dance through the halls after seeing one of their outreach performances!

The choregraphy is dynamic and physically challenging and the dancers move with grace and strength. We are also very impressed with the focus of the company on its outreach to the community.

Each time you go to see a Hannah Kahn Dance Company performance you know that your senses will be in for a treat. The beauty of the music and costumes are surpassed only by the dances themselves. The dancers captivate, mezmerize, and entertain.

attending a myriad of performances.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Not change anything. They've got their priorities straight and are doing wonderful work.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

It takes a tremendous amount of work to do the outreach work and performing that they do. It's admirable.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly, enthusiastic.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand its teaching and outreach into more schools and performances.

Ways to make it better...

No way to improve - although performances at the Lakewood Cultural Center are better-suited (better acoustics, setting, etc) than other venues.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Limited resources, of course!

I have been a choreographic colleague of Hannah Kahn's for many years. I have also studied dance technique with Hannah for a very long time. Hannah Kahn's choreography is exciting, dynamic, very physical, breathtaking, and very musical. She has a gift for working with dancers and bringing out their skills; the dancers she employs are all stunning movers and beautiful to watch. Hannah is an outstanding teacher of modern dance, and has trained an entire generation of dancers in Denver. She is an important part of the Colorado dance scene. I hope you will make the opportunity to see Hannah Kahn Dance Company perform!
