Evolving Doors Dance

As one of Colorado’s first queer-founded dance companies, Evolving Doors Dance has a fifteen-year history of presenting original, professional, innovative contemporary modern dance in Colorado. The company cultivates, collaborates, builds community, educates, and performs while nurturing the art of dance and movement and its place in our world. As EDD’s work paints pictures only bodies and spacial relationships can conjure, it uses dance as a medium to bring human and social awareness to its audience and its community--both locally and nationally. The company has been an invited guest performer at Boulder’s GLBTQ Annual Youth Conference, Denver Independent Choreographers Project, Colorado Dance Education Organization, the RAD (Regional Alternative Dance) Festival, and guest artists at Iowa State University and Middle Tennessee State University as part of a diversity grant. The company has performed in Colorado, Mississippi, Michigan, Missouri, Iowa, Illinois, Wyoming, and New York. EDD’s directors, Angie Simmons and Amy Shelley are long-time Colorado artist who’ve run the company since 2006, presenting sociopolitically infused dance work that centers around issues of equality, the GLBTQ community, empowerment of women, and connecting humans to themselves and each other through art. Simmons holds an MFA in choreography from the CU Boulder and BS from Illinois State University. Shelley holds a BM in Music Percussion Performance from CU Boulder and plays with various bands in the state. The company currently includes eight dancers and four musicians.Check the company out by viewing our Youtube dance-for-camera short video, Coil & Web, releasing Sept 22nd, here on Play2Fund!
