Edgar L. Page: Feel the Movement 

The 2020 Presenting Denver Dance Festival, co-presented by Presenting Denver and The Robert and Judi Newman Center for the Performing Arts has been postponed until June 2021. We encourage you to subscribe to the Presenting Denver mailing list to receive future communications about the 2021 event. 

A Main Stage artist at the 2018 Dance Festival, choreographer Edgar L. Page was selected by the public to receive the acclaimed “Audience Favorite Award”. As part of the 2018 award, Presenting Denver surprised Edgar with a $1,000.00 prize and plaque.

“The Presenting Denver Dance Festival was an incredible opportunity to be introduced to and make connections with other amazing local artists. As an emerging choreographer having my work presented in collaboration with the Robert and Judi Newman Center was a huge deal. Throughout the experience I learned so much more about myself and the wealth of talent Colorado has to offer. I am so excited to participate in the 2020 Festival, and share what my company, Edgar L. Page: Feel the Movement, has been working on. We are so grateful to have been invited back as the first recipient of the Audience Favorite Award.”~ Edgar L. Page

 

ABOUT EDGAR L. PAGE

Detroit Native, Edgar L. Page began his training through the Detroit Public Schools system, graduating from Cass Technical High School and furthering his studies at the Alvin Ailey School and the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange. Earning his BA in Dance from Western Michigan University, he was a member of the Dayton Contemporary Dance Second Company before joining the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble for nearly a decade. With graceful prowess, Page investigates contemporary movement aesthetics while curating emotional landscapes for the stage.

Establishing Edgar L. Page: Feel the Movement in June of 2018, he utilizes this unique platform to explore the human pursuit of love and happiness in an era marked by the continual morphing of intimacy due to technology. Working towards autonomy as an Artistic Director and Choreographer, Page is cultivating a body of work with palpable energy that crosses borders or effaces them completely. Engaging audiences and inviting them to explore #thefeelingofanemotion, this allows his work to live in larger social conversation long after the final bow.
