Bella Barnum Collier
Bella has been a part of the local dance community ever since she took her first ballet class here in Glenwood Springs in 1998. Since then she has pursued a passion for dance by training with studios across the valley, traveling to conventions and receiving instruction from stand out names like Denise Wall, Mandy Moore, Mia Michaels, Travis Wall, tWitch Boss and more. Her original choreography has been featured in the annual showcases, winter festivals, and student showcases since 2010. She has created award winning competitive pieces since 2016, with many of her pieces ranking top 10 Nationally in the summer of 2017.
A Colorado Mountain College Theatre graduate, and a 2012 recipient of the Ivy Adler Memorial Scholarship, Bella shares an equal love of Acting and Musical Theater. She has been seen in various shows, most recently in the role of “Tzeitel” in Defiance Community Theater Company’s 2015 production of Fiddler On the Roof. Her choreography has also been featured in Theater Productions up and down the valley, most notably in Colorado Mountain College's production of I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change, VOICES original production Panic!, Glenwood Springs High School’s production of Legally Blonde: The Musical, and Defiance Community Theater Company’s You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown.
It doesn’t take much to see Bella’s love, and commitment to her teaching and performing. This passion for her art has come together to support her most recent role as Owner/Executive Director of Legacy Dance Company and Vice President of Defiance Community Theater Company.
