Boulder’s Dance Bridge wins Colorado Dance Award

Congratulations to Dance Bridge of Boulder for winning the Colorado Dance Award for Service to the Field (for Organizations) on Saturday.

Dance Bridge was established by the Boulder Arts Commission and serves as a news and discussion center for Colorado’s dance scene. According to its website, Dance Bridge is

Dance Bridge has also listed Apex events in the past, so we’re very glad they’re recognized for their work in promoting dance in Colorado! Kudos! Check out their website to learn more.
