Dancer Denna Thomsen (B.A., ’07) didn’t think she needed college – she just wanted to move to Los Angeles and begin her career. She leapt into academics anyway, choosing CSU for its high credentials. After graduating, she danced for superstar singers, including Madonna at the Super Bowl. After that performance, she decided to act on her conviction that dancers are storytellers too. That decision became AXIOM Dance Theatre, a successful venture allowing her to share her own choreography and help revive the historical centrality of dance.
