Arrangement: Arranged in four sub-series: Colorado College Summer Dance Program, Honors, Publications, and Colorado Opera Festival.
This limited series reflects the growth of the Colorado College Summer Dance Program (sometimes referred to as the Hanya Holm School of the Dance) from its opening in 1941 through its final year in 1983. Included are annual program bulletins, announcements, programs, student lists and correspondence. Titles of dances Holm created during the summer session appear on programs along with those of student dancers. Larger productions are more fully documented. Material concerning Holm's honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from Colorado College as well as her 25th and 40th anniversary celebrations are included here. Programs also document Holm's work on the Colorado Opera Festival.
