The Wyoming Arts Council celebrates dance with Dance Across Wyoming for the 2007 American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts. The WAC has worked with four major presenting partners: Contemporary Dance Wyoming (CDW), the state’s only professional dance company; the Theater and Dance Department at the University of Wyoming (UW) in Laramie; the UW Cultural Outreach Office, coordinator of the modern dance tours; and the Buffalo Bill Historical Center (BBHC) in Cody, coordinator for performances of traditional Native American dances.
Dance Across Wyoming promotes two historically and culturally significant American dance forms — modern dance and powwow dance. Between March 1 and June 30, sixteen Wyoming communities have hosted (or will host) performances by modern or Native American dance troupes, giving access to live performance and greater cultural appreciation of American Masterpieces to a broad audience.
