The BJDW has truly changed my life for the best. Not only have I learned things to improve myself as a dancer, performer, and dance teacher from great mentors, but I have also learned so much about myself. 110+ hours of dancing, rehearsing, sweating, and performing... I'd do it all over again!

The BJDW has helped me grow as a dancer, choreographer, and person! It creates a brilliantly contagious atmosphere that encourages dancers to think differently and learn.

Nothing short of magnificent!
Brooke Armstrong Student at VCU, Attended BJDW 2014 & 2015 January 8, 2015
Every year I come to the BJDW and go home with something new - a new feeling, something I learned, or saw, or did...something that I never felt before. It changes me every year more and more.

The BJDW is something I look forward to all year, every year. What happens in the classes and shows is absolutely unexplainable, and each year I am reminded of how much I love it and how important it is to me.

Explaining Boulder Jazz Dance Workshop to someone who has never been - it's basically impossible. How do you explain to someone that 2 short weeks of each year can change lives?
Amelia Rosegrant (BJDW student 2009-2013) December 30, 2014
The BJDW is truly a life changing experience. Being surrounded by people who enjoy dance as much as you do is fulfilling and reinforces the love we have for this art!
