Colorado dance companies band together for benefit

Posted By: Stephanie Riesco

Amy Hollinger, a 22-year-old ballerina, was walking home from a dance performance last October when she was struck by a car. Now, almost three months later, 17 local dance companies will perform together to raise money for the recovering ballerina.

This Saturday, Jan. 19, the Performing Arts Complex at Pinnacle Charter School in Denver will host the Amy Hollinger Celebration and Dance Benefit. Hollinger’s accident in October left her with severe brain damage and, after months of medical treatment, she is due to begin therapy to relearn speech and mobility this month. All proceeds of the benefit will go directly to paying for Hollinger’s medical expenses.

After joining the Colorado dance scene in 2008, Hollinger made her mark through performing with Colorado Ballet and through teaching dance. David Reuille, the artistic director of Apex Contemporary Dance Theatre, says that there has been an overwhelming response from the dance community to give back to such an involved member.

Dance companies participating in the event include Wonderbound (formerly Ballet Nouveau Colorado), Colorado Ballet, Boulder Ballet, Apex Dance Company and many others. Reuille says that audiences can expect a diverse showcase of a local talent and dance styles.

The dance companies are pitching in their talents in free of charge, and Pinnacle Charter School donated the space and theater staff. Other donors volunteered to cover the costs the to the school for hosting the event. 

“It’s really a full tasting of what Colorado dance has to offer,” Reuille says. “[We have] the top ballet companies in the state, the top modern dance companies in the state from Denver and Boulder, companies that do mixed rep like sacred dance, lyrical dance, second company dance. Wonderbound and Colorado Ballet will be doing a combined group piece.”

There is a suggested donation of $20 for entrance into the show. Reuille said that supporting Hollinger is just one great reason to spend the evening at the Performing Arts Complex.

“If people are interested in dance, it’s a great opportunity to come out and see what’s going on in Colorado in terms of dance and to raise money for a good cause,” Reuille said.
