Presenting Denver: What is the best part of your day?

Hannah Kahn: Being in the studio with the dancers working on choreography is the most rewarding part of my work life. There is nothing like creating something with other creative people who are contributing their energy and passion to my movement material.


PD: What is the biggest thing you have learned from failure?

HK: Learning to choose to do the creative work I love even when I fail to get the success or attention for my work that I would dream of has given me confidence in my ability to persevere and self-validate.


PD: Who is your favorite dance company, teacher, or dancer? Why?

HK: Sarah Stackhouse, who was a dancer with the Jose Limon Dance Company, was the teacher who inspired me the most. The way she approached movement with imagery, sensuality, depth and clarity made a huge impact on me.
