Zikr Dance Ensemble
Denver's critically acclaimed Zikr Dance Ensemble presents works from the classical ballet repertoire, including a melody of variations from Le Corsaire, along with original and contemporary ballet realizations focusing on transcendent dance rituals from ancient world cultures. Critics call their performances "deeply moving...bringing the ancient to the new millennium," while hailing Artistic Director David Taylor's "depth of spirit and artistic vision." Members of the Zikr have danced with the California Ballet, toured with Twyla Tharp and trained at the American Ballet Theatre in New York City. As some of the finest dancers in Colorado, their performances are consistently met with standing ovations and rave reviews. Show starts at 7:30 p.m. Adult tickets are $20 early bird and $25 week of. Students (18 and under) are $15 early bird and $20 week of.
