Project Description

Grantee Profile: Wonderbound

Wonderbound is the result of the 2012 decision to divide Ballet Nouveau Colorado into two entities: Wonderbound, which is a contemporary dance company located in downtown Denver; and Colorado Conservatory of Dance, a ballet school located in Broomfield. The Bonfils-Stanton Foundation was instrumental in the transformation and process.

Wonderbound was launched with the mission to use dance to deepen humankind’s common bond through uncommon endeavors of discovery and creation. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Garrett Ammon, Wonderbound has become an acclaimed contemporary dance company, recognized for creating new choreography, and developing collaborative partnerships across diverse artistic mediums.

Making art and dance accessible to the community is a priority for Wonderbound. Each year more than 25,000 residents from school children to senior citizens from diverse backgrounds participate in Wonderbound’s community programs.

Bonfils-Stanton Foundation helps sustain operations and programs throughout the season, and supported the organization’s participation in the 2017 Vail International Dance Festival.
