Helander Dance Theater
Colorado-based Helander Dance Theater was founded by Danelle Helander, Artistic Director & Choreographer in 1980. With a reputation for multi-faceted artistry and striking choreography, HDT's mission is to make a vital contribution to our global community using dance as a vehicle for creating greater understanding, sharing & healing. Danelle was given the role of Ambassador during HDT’s Sister Cities tour within Tajikistan, Nicaragua, Japan and Tibet collaboration with the University of Colorado and the Mali Assistance Project allowed HDT to use performance as a vehicle for providing needed supplies to Mali villages. The company has also partnered with Global Response to resolve an oil drilling issue in Costa Rica. In performance, HDT is eclectic, dramatic, sometimes whimsical & always thought provoking.
