Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble doing Raindance

Untitled Final Friday Celebrates Dance

July 29, 2016, 6-10 pm

It’s time to get steppin’ for Untitled In-Sync, the first of three movin,’ groovin’ Untitled Final Fridays celebrating dance at the Denver Art Museum. For July, we’re gathering our crews for a night of synchronized moves and creative collaborations, as we look at partners, pair-ups, and performances that really, you know…move us!

Watch Cleo Parker Robinson Dance: Your first step is to hustle on outside for a grand performance by the amazing Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Company. Dancing in front of In Motion (our colorful new ribbon installation by Demiurge. Have you seen it yet?!), these all stars are sure to inspire some fancy footwork all night long.

Listen to Spinphony: For act two, the dynamite divas of Spinphony Electric String Quartet are cutting the strings loose and electrifying the block.

Discover Why We Dance: When you’re ready to make your next move, head inside to discover the exhibition Why We Dance: American Indian Art in Motion with featured artists from the exhibition.

Dance Your Cares Away: Now that you’re up, it’s time to shake a tail feather in #dancelab! Created in collaboration with Legwork Studio and Wonderbound, this exhibition is absolutely guaranteed to make you look cool (trust me, it’s the JAM!). Have two left feet? No worries! Laugh off your missteps and dance your cares away with two therapeutic playtimes from Kaiser Permanente and Wonderbound dance therapist Heather Sutton.

More, More, More

  • Not ready to take center stage? Practice your baby steps and enjoy a special performance from the young artists of the DAM’s “Painting to Performance” summer class.

  • Get a leg-up on the competition and compete for your favorite artworks in a Denver Public Library auction that will have you jumping out of your seat.

  • Band together for some real teamwork with the improv experts from DCPA’s Cult Following, in a gallery tour that’s sure to be sharp-tongued and quick on its feet. Now keep the wordplay flowing with slam poet Franklin Cruz and collaborate with Cuatro[4] artist Carlos Fresquez in an installation that will pair you up with some pre-Columbian characters.

Bring your best moves and we’ll save you a dance at Untitled In-Sync! (Justin Timberlake not included.)
