About the speaker
Dawn Fay is President of Wonderbound, and her professional career spanned more than twenty years, including being named one of Dance Magazine’s “25 to Watch.” Dawn is a native of Memphis, Tennessee and received her professional training at North Carolina School of the Arts. She has performed classical works including Rudolf Nureyev’s Don Quixote, Fleming Flindt’s La Sylphide, as well as Giselle, Cinderella and Coppelia. She has danced contemporary works by Garrett Ammon, Trey McIntyre, Jiri Kylian, Choo San Goh, and Lila York among others.
As President of Wonderbound, Dawn works closely with Artistic Director Garrett Ammon on the development and creation of his new works and facilitates the collaborations with Wonderbound’s plethora of multi-genre artists. Dawn plays a key role in all of Wonderbound’s fundraising efforts, and she is also deeply involved in all of Wonderbound’s community programs.
Garrett Ammon began his tenure as Artistic Director of Wonderbound in 2007. Under his direction, the organization has been transformed into an open laboratory for cross disciplinary exploration and creation. He has been recognized for his work as both an artist and leader through a Denver Mayor’s Award for Excellence in Arts & Culture and a Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Livingston Fellowship.
