DU CONSISTENTLY PLAYS a starring role in Denver’s dynamic arts and cultural scene. In 2017–18 alone, the Newman Center Presents (NCP) series welcomed more than 20,000 audience members, exceeding its previous attendance record by more than 47 percent. And in June, NCP co-sponsored, along with the nonprofit organization Presenting Denver, the first installment of a biennial two-day Presenting Denver Dance Festival. The event took place on campus and included free performances, as well as an evening of world premieres by Colorado companies.
