The 41-year-old Denver-based artistic institution’s mission is to foster appreciation of and the development of new audiences for dance. Robinson attempts to educate audiences about the rich heritage and ancestral gifts on which this predominately African-American ensemble draws through a year-round dance school, an international summer dance institute and through national and international performances.
“We’re thrilled to be back in Milledgeville; it’s a community that is diverse and is well connected. I feel like there is a great appreciation for the arts, which is unexpected when arts have been cut all over the country,” Robinson said. “We’ve toured for 43 years around the world, and it feels so good to us to be in a smaller community that is racially diverse and has been through so many transformations and has some real history. I just think we have found a family here.”
