I first started taking dance classes weekly (when possible) in 2005 when I moved to Denver from Boulder. Hannah Kahn and her dancers were warm and welcoming to me as a newcomer and as I continued to take classes on a regular basis I noticed improvements in my own technique. I can honestly say that I am a much stronger and more confident dancer because of this company. Classes are always well-planned, professional, and rewarding. I am grateful for Hannah Kahn's patience and dedication in helping every student improve and advance in her class. The price of the classes is very low considering the length of the class, the live music accompaniment, and the attention each student is given.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My own dance technique. I am a much better dancer now thanks to the Hannah Kahn Dance Company.

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

Warm, welcoming, professional, and knowledgeable.

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

Reach far more people in the community and put on spectacular shows in large venues. They could maintain low prices for their classes and possibly take their talents to other communities . . . tour the world!

This company offers wonderful modern dance performances in a genre -- non-narrative -- that is sometimes overlooked these days. The quality of the dancing and choreography are both first-rate. The school shows the company provides really reach many students in ways that only the arts can accomplish.

performances.

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

enable it to perform for larger audiences.

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

seeing excellent dance performances.

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

dedicated and talented

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

perform in more venues.

Ways to make it better...

performances were more frequent.

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

alerting more people to the strengths of the modern dance art form.

One thing I'd also say is that...

non-narrative art can really expand a person's perceptions and feelings.

As a dancer myself I attend most of the dance performances around Denver/Boulder and ran my own creative movement dance school for many years in Denver. With all this interest in the dance world of Denver I can tell you that we are very lucky to have Hannah Kahn Dance Company here creating dances. Her work is stunning to watch. It is movement art happening on stage right in front of you. Hannah's choreography is a personal response to the beautiful and varied music she chooses from around the world and different genres, and her dancers work hard to learn the complex steps and qualities she looks for in performance. Hannah also enriches our community with her instruction of dancers and company members with tremendous skill as well as heart in her Denver studio. She and her company do even more by providing arts outreach to our youth through dance performance and teaching in the Denver area schools. I have known Hannah since she moved to Denver in the 1980's from New York and currently also serve on her board. Even when I was not on the board I would go to see everything this company did and I heartily encourage you to as well.

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

Hannah's artistry is matched by her respect for and care of her dancers, and for everyone with whom she collaborates. This is a quality that is often rare in the competitive and poorly funded world of the arts and dance in particular.

Hannah's dance performances are all memorable and highly enjoyable. She is not only a talented modern dance choreographer, but she also has a very special sensitivity to different forms of music. Each of her performances weaves together many musical genres (jazz, modern, pop, classical, folk, etc) with unforgettable, exciting dance moves. You have to come see and hear for yourself!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

dance performances.

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

the community outreach it does - teaching dance to inner city middle and high school students.

Getting to live out my love for modern dance.

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

Very passionate and committed to the organization

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

Tour nationally, hire dancers full-time, provide more community outreach exposing children to the performing arts.
