kim olson/sweet edge creates high quality dance experiences that reveal an overwhelming sense of awe of the human condition.
Performance: The Company produces high quality performances that push the bounds of dance. It has moved toward exceedingly public, on-site performance events - reaching new and diverse audiences by appearing in spaces/places not usually associated with dance or performance. Working in this fashion provides artistic inspiration, develops unique work and takes dance to the people.
Collaborations:kim olson/ sweet edge materializes artistic collaborations, and integrates multi-media elements into its work, thus enriching the artistic experience, closing the gap between artistic communities, and creating greater audiences for dance as it merges worlds with other media.
Outreach: The Company conducts outreach independently and through Think 360, performing residency activities, workshops and educational performances and demonstrations for schools (k-12), as well as adult continuing education experiences.
Classes/Workshops: Olson offers frequent advanced/professional dance classes and workshops for the local dance community. All Company rehearsals are open rehearsals.2011 we beginCreative Aesthetic Workshops for those with no formal movement/arts training, engaging them via a multimedia approach to hone skills of perceptivity, awareness, communication and intellectual and emotional response, in order too awaken the inner artist, fuel the joy of learning, and deepen connections within our lives.
"We maintain affiliations with local, state and global artistic communities. Offering and receiving inspiration, resources and support on a global level is vital - helping connect Denver Dance to the world. It is also continuing education - keeping us abreast of current trends so that we may create, produce, and promote the highest standard of modern dance to our own community."
