Meet our new Academy Manager, Edgar L. Page!

Sept. 1, 2021

Greetings All!

It is my sincere pleasure to (re)introduce myself to this village, while also connecting with many of you for the first time! I AM Edgar L. Page and I am your new Academy Manager. I have an extensive history within dance education, development, and management that saw me rise in many roles during my twelve years within the Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Village (eight of which as a celebrated performer in the Ensemble). I am excited to usher the Academy forward using embodied pedagogical approaches that are constructive, inquiry-based, reflective, collaborative and integrative. I honor the work that has been incredible by my colleague, Amelia Dietz, and encourage you to not hesitate to reach out to me to address your needs, inquiries, or concerns. I am invested in the holistic development of individuals towards creative and technical mastery. This will continue to celebrate the communal vision set forth by Cleo Parker Robinson; which has always uplifted Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion as we seek to ensure ALL are truly welcome within our “Ile Ife” (Home of Dispersion). As our dear Baba Chuck used to say: “I AM, because YOU ARE!”

CPRD/MSUD Dance Major

The MSU Denver Dance major is unique in its versatility and in its partnership with Cleo Parker Robinson Dance (CPRD). CPRD is recognized worldwide for their dynamic cross-cultural curriculum, community engagement, innovative choreography, and promotion of American dance heritage. In this exciting program, CPRD’s mission of social transformation through dance and MSU Denver’s academic rigor and focus on real-world experience converge.

The dance curriculum includes coursework in modern, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, tap, world dance forms, world dance history and culture, community-based dance practices, somatics and anatomy, pedagogy, improvisation, choreography, contemporary dance and interdisciplinary performance, movement analysis, dance production, and arts administration. The Dance Program allows students to combine their interest in dance with other fields, taking classes in non-profit management, teaching or arts administration, among others. The program will utilize service learning, field experience, and internship programs to enrich students’ learning and to foster a connection between MSU and its student body and the Denver community. We aim to prepare students for their future in dance and beyond, supporting their specific career and educational goals through concrete learning experiences and creative exploration.
