KUSA - It's a historical collaboration between two of Denver's performing icons. Between Cleo Parker Dance and Fiesta Colorado, they have contributed more than 70 years to Colorado's artistic heritage.
"We've always wanted to work together," Jeanette Trujillo-Lucero of Fiesta Colorado said. "Our stories and cultures are intertwined."
Dancing at the Crossroads is the result of this collaboration that features an excerpt from "Sombra Y Sol" by legendary choreographer Donald McKayle. The performance also includes a memorable tribute to the life and work of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo set to the music by Aaron Copeland.
Opening day will be Friday at the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Theater. For ticket information and event times visit www.CleoParkerDance.org or call 303-295-1759.
