Biography & Artist's Statements

The Zikr Dance Ensemble offers a spectrum of works that are based on transcendent dance rituals from many different ancient world cultures throughout history along with original and contemporary dance/theatre realizations. The company ‘s purpose is to offer performance experiences for both participants and audiences alike which are both theatrically engaging and educational and which also promote multi-cultural respect, diversity and tolerance. The Zikr Dance Ensemble aims to preserve the sheer beauty of the historic dances, and along with the presentation of original and contemporary works, seeks to enhance the appreciation for the unity of the human spirit and provide a unique artistic experience of the many ways that diverse spiritual and cultural traditions express creativity and wonder through dance.

 

The Zikr Dance Ensemble’s outstanding company members are some of the finest ballet-trained professionals in the state and include guest artists from the Colorado Ballet as well as from other professional companies from along the front range. The company has received consistent standing ovations and critical acclaim over the past four years through performances in Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins, Parker, Carbondale, Grand Junction, Pagosa Springs, Ouray, Ridgway, Niwot, Salida, Alamosa and Crested Butte as well as in St. Paul, MN and Los Angeles.

Zikr’s performances have been called “ deeply moving….bringing the ancient to the new millennium…”.  Critics have hailed Artistic Director David Taylor’s “depth of spirit and artistic vision, coupled with a degree of creativity that continues to awe.”
