The San Juan College Silhouette Series will present the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble on Saturday, November 17, at 7 p.m., in the Henderson Fine Arts Center Performance Hall at San Juan College.
Led by founder and choreographer Cleo Parker Robinson, the Denver-based dance troupe often performs traditional African dances and timeless classics of the ensemble’s repertoire. Parker Robinson’s mantra of “one spirit, many voices” transcends her 12 dancers and illuminates the stage.
A master teacher/choreographer, and cultural ambassador, Parker Robinson has taught and performed with her Ensemble in such diverse places as Iceland, Singapore, Hawaii, Nassau, Belize, Israel, Egypt, Turkey, throughout Europe, and throughout the African continent.
She leads a professional dance Ensemble, Youth Ensemble, a School of Dance, an International Summer Dance Institute, a 300-seat theatre that bears her name, and a myriad of community outreach programs. She continues to be the recipient of honors and awards from civic, community, and artistic organizations around the world, and is called on by a myriad of organizations and performance venues to bring her Ensemble for performances, and to conduct workshops, master classes, and motivational seminars.
Tickets for the show are $20 for adults, $18 for students, $15 for seniors, and $12 for children 12 and under.
