A Dream Project...

DREAM PROJECT is a performing team for women 18 years and older in the Denver area. DREAM PROJECT producer Lisa Pevateaux says, "I came up with DREAM PROJECT as a result of me missing the old Dance West DIVAS that I used to direct in Boulder. I feel there are very few opportunities for dancers over the age of 18 in Colorado with the exception of professional teams such as the Denver Broncos Cheerleaders, Denver Nuggets Dancers and professional theater. I have always found it sad that women stop dancing way before their time, and in many cases prior to reaching their highest levels of the sport/art. Because many dancers aren't comfortable taking classes in the "studio" environment once they graduate high school, they stop dancing all together and this is where DREAM PROJECT comes in."

DREAM PROJECT got its name for three reasons.

1. To fulfill the dreams of dancers not ready to retire,
2. To complete the dreams of choreographers unable to find other opportunities to express themselves and their talent,
3. And to help complete the dreams of the charities we are able to contribute to.

Their first show LUCID will be on October 23rd at 6:30 and 9pm at the Lakewood Cultural Center at 470 S. Allison Pkwy. A LUCID dream can be described as a dream in which the sleeper is aware the she is dreaming. When she is lucid, she can actively participate in, and often manipulate, the imaginary experiences in the dream environment. LUCID dreams can be extremely real and vivid depending on a person's level of self-awareness. Our dreams (and pieces in this show) encompass many emotions; love, heartbreak, fear, emptiness, horror, humor, and more. We invite you to join us and be a part of the VERY FIRST DREAM PROJECT.
