Kim Robards Dance represents and presents the highest quality modern dance programming and implements one of the state's most comprehensive educational outreach programs.
Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times, in February 2008, wrote, "...a strong sense of craft and an affinity for lyrical movement and big musical scores. That in and of itself qualifies for revolutionary status these days. So do the dignity and joy with which Ms. Robards' eight company members perform, and the pleasure Ms. Robards seems to take in dance without clumsily concocted themes and other gimmicks. True, the choreography does demand unremitting energy and athleticism from the performers, a staple in dance today. But Ms. Robards thinks in grander terms".
Former Governor Roy Romer stated during the Governor's Awards for Excellence in the Arts presentation to KRD, "Kim Robards Dance has been on the leading edge of dance innovation and collaboration, not only presenting high quality performances throughout the state, nation and world, but also conducting numerous school dance seminars dedicated to inspiring Colorado's youth to greater levels of individuality and competence."
"CONGRATULATIONS YOU GUYS!!!! I cannot tell you how happy I am that you did not get criticized for beauty and joy of movement from a more "traditional" view. GOOD for you for staying true to who and what you are. Your work is beautiful for a reason. Because it is real, honest and unapologetic. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!"
