Appreciative Living Circle

Are you interested in having a more positive outlook? Come learn more about Appreciative Inquiry and join an Appreciative Living Circle on campus next month. It's not about fixing ourselves or our lives, but in finding what works; where we excel; what we love; what makes us come alive. It's about taking responsibility for the life we have created and for the one we desire. This is a four-week program beginning Aug. 4 or 5 and ending Aug. 25 or 26, from noon-1:30 p.m. Note that you can sign up for either the Thursday or Friday four-week session; contact Gary Brower with questions or to sign up. No cost to DU participants, although you will need to acquire a textbook. This is not a religiously- or faith-based program, but is easily adaptable to anyone's belief system. Get more information about Appreciative Living here.

Rising Stars: Denver Civic Ballet and Ballet Guild exhibit currently on display

The exhibit Rising Stars: Denver Civic Ballet and Ballet Guild is on display through November 2016 on the upper level of the Anderson Academic Commons.

This exhibit explores the history and impact of the Denver Civic Ballet, Denver's first semi-professional ballet company, and its support organization, the Denver Civic Ballet Guild. The company hosted world-renowned artistic directors and guest artists from the American Ballet Theatre and other international companies, bringing the sophistication of professional ballet to Denver for the first time. Though the company folded in 1979 after 21 years of performances, it was a launching pad for dance notables who have had a lasting impact on dance, and are profiled in the exhibit. The guild continues today as the Denver Ballet Guild.
