Since founded in 2006 by Artistic Director, Jenny Schiff, The Schiff Dance Collective has been Schiffting audiences throughout Colorado. Using human themes and stories gathered from their community to create choreographic works, they strive to make dance relatable to a larger audience and create community through the arts. Having presented 11 evening length works and commissions they have been described as “stunning”, “a fresh look”, and “powerful”. Through performances, instruction, and outreach The Schiff Dance Collective aids the community in finding the truth and passion in their lives through movement.
