Judy Bejarano teaches Improvisation, Choreography, and Modern Technique at Colorado State University. She is also well known for her innovative evening length productions as the artistic director of IMPACT Dance Company, a dance/theatre company whose performances speak to issues in our everyday lives. She collaborates and creates custom events with area art groups as well as for private events. Bejarano is increasingly interested in redefining how the relationship between performer and audience. Therefore, IMPACT s work can be found in nontraditional spaces, from art galleries, to storefronts, to airplane hangars. Bejarano is increasingly interested in exploring the use of dance as a collaborative outreach tool and has a long term relationship with the arts programs at Pathways Hospice. The company also has a well established integrated arts outreach program called Every Voice Matters. Bejarano s work has been selected for many regional and national festivals including National American College Dance Festival, Colorado Choreographers Showcase, and Gala Concert for the National Dance Association Festival. Her topic driven work often uses original text, dance and projection and continues to be commissioned at the university level and by independent dance, theatre and music groups. Bejarano, an enthusiastic and demanding instructor, also teaches throughout the region. She received her Master of Fine Arts from C.U. Boulder in dance with an emphasis in choreography.
