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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

I love Hannah Kahn Dance Company. The Hannah Kahn Dance Company actively gives back to the community by teaching and performing in the schools. It is wonderful to see such a talented professional company embracing the youth of Colorado.

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.

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.

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.

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!

Hannah Kahn provides wonderful modern dance in the Denver community. Her concerts are some of the most professionally produced shows I've seen here or anywhere. She also provides solid modern dance technique training not only to her dancers, but to the dance community at large.
