Spotlight on the Stars: Colby Foss

Posted on: June 5th, 2012 by admin



Colby performing in An Occasional Dream set to the music of David Bowie.

Colby Foss began his dance training in Fargo, North Dakota, at age 15. At the time, he enjoyed performing in musical theater, and the director of his middle school production asked him to be the boy in a dance studio’s version of The Velveteen Rabbit. He was required to be enrolled in a dance class to be eligible, so he took a ja class. And the rest is history, he says.

“I love how dance provides a medium to use one’s own body to create art,” says Colby. “You don’t need brushes or instruments, just yourself. It’s a wonderful combination of athleticism and artistry.”

Colby graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Arizona in 2008 with a BFA in dance. He taught and performed with Ballet Magnificat in Tucson, before joining BNC. Now in his fourth season at BNC, Colby has performed in Garrett Ammon’s An Occasional Dream and No Passengers, as well as works by Ma Cong, Joshua Blake Carter and Jon Sloven. He will be appearing in the special encore performance of Garrett Ammon’s Rock Ballets, June 8th.

“Rock Ballets is my favorite BNC production because it’s fresh in my mind,” Colby says. “There’s a lot of great dancing in there. And great tunes!”

Currently, Colby spends 40 hours per week preparing for his next performance. He loves to rock out to his favorite rock song “Live and Let Die” by the Beatles. He loves the song because it reminds him to be his own person and forge his own path, regardless of what society may expect.

When Colby’s not dancing, you can find him hiking, practicing yoga and catching up on his Hulu queue. And did we mention he loves to eat? Colby loves all things Indian. If he wasn’t a dancer he would definitely want to be a judge on Top Chef.

Don’t miss Colby’s next performance in Rock Ballets on June 8th at the Arvada Center Outdoor Amphitheater.  Tickets start at $15 for Lawn seats. Buy tickets now!

Spotlight on Scholarship Students: Skyler

Posted on: May 10th, 2012 by sasha-galikeeva


When he was in fifth grade, Skyler caught the eye of BNC's School Director Julia Wilkinson-Manley during a BNC community outreach program, Teaching Math Through Dance. Shortly after this program, Skyler started dancing at BNC as a scholarship student. During his 5 years at BNC, Skyler has performed the part of Fritz and the Nutcracker Prince in The Nutcracker. Skyler's favorite part in The Nutcracker was the Prince because it "highlights his strong jumps and movements." Skyler is also a member of the student company.  In class, Skyler is learning to lift and carry the female dancers. Skyler loves showcasing his skills and competing. In fact, this year he won at the annual Denver Ballet Guild Competition. And he will be performing at Gala on June 2nd, and it "will be the best yet." In the future, Skyler plans to go to college to study dance and become a professional dancer and instructor some day.

 You can see Skyler and the rest of the student company perform Madeline Stands Tall on May 12th. Tickets start at $10!

You can also help support BNC by sponsoring one of our scholarship students.  To learn more about this opportunity email BNC’s Executive Director, Christin Crampton Day,

Spotlight on Scholarship Student: Nick

Posted on: May 9th, 2012 by sasha-galikeeva


Nick has been dancing for five years, since he was eight years old. His sister Momo also dances at BNC. Nick is a member of our student company as well as a scholarship student. He has performed in his all-time favorite show, The Nutcracker, for 4 years. During one of the four years, Nick played the part of Fritz. In addition to performing in The Nutcracker, Nick will also be performing many pieces at Gala in June. Nick will be performing in a variety of styles, including ballet, jazz, modern, and contemporary. One of Nick’s favorite experiences so far at BNC was assisting in the Ballet Expressions adaptive dance class. This experience has influenced Nick’s plans to be "a physical therapist and a dance teacher."

Besides dancing, Nick also loves the feel of the wind blowing through his hair when he rides his bike.  

You can see Nick and the rest of the student company perform Madeline Stands Tall on May 12th. Tickets start at $10!

Spotlight on Scholarship Students: Momo

Posted on: May 3rd, 2012 by sasha-galikeeva


If you were at Dance From the Heart in January, you saw Momo dance a lively, contemporary solo. As one of BNC's scholarship students, Momo is part of our student company performers and she has been dancing for 11 years, since she was four. At BNC, Momo loves being able to dance with all of her friends and to work with amazing teachers. She enjoys "performing everything." She performed in The Nutcracker this past December and she liked being able to dance on stage with the professional company. This June, at Gala, Momo will be performing pieces in a variety of styles, including ballet, modern, jazz, and contemporary.

When Momo isn't dancing she enjoys watching movies and she loves dogs.

Momo will be sharing the lead role of Madeline with her best friend, Kaileah and will also be dancing in The Garden, which will be part of the Madeline Stands Tall show. Momo's goal is to become a professional dancer with a contemporary ballet company, similar to BNC's company. "This opportunity to work with Ms. Dawn Fay (BNC's Associate Artistic Dir and the choreographer of The Garden) has been an amazing experience that has been like a dream come true! Her choreography is always very new and unexpected. It challenges me to break old patterns and to move in ways that I never have before. It has helped me learn how to show different emotions through my body," states Momo.

Come see Momo and the rest of our student company perform at Madeline Stands Tall, May 12th.  Tickets start at $10!

You can also help support BNC by sponsoring one of our scholarship students.  To learn more about this opportunity email BNC's Executive Director, Christin Crampton Day,
