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

a multi-faceted project aimed to broaden public participation in dance through support, promotion and the centralization of services and resources. The Dance Bridge acts as a clearing-house for dancers and dance-related activities in the area.

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.
