Move the Butte

Crested Butte in Motion




Welcome Dancers to Move the Butte 2021!

Calling all dancers, movers and shakers in the Gunnison Valley!! Are you interested in dancing in the 12th annual Move the Butte?! The Crested Butte Dance Collective is putting on this amazing community dance production and we would love for you to join us! All COVID regulations will be followed and we hope to do a video and a limited performance if COVID allows! (Keep wearing those masks folks!)


How to join MTB:

If you are interested in dancing, please take a look at the attached ‘Call for Dancers’ document and reach out to the piece choreographer directly. Please note: there is a maximum of 4 pieces per dancer this year.

In order to be in MTB, you must be at least 18yrs. old and able to attend all of the mandatory Move the Butte dates below.



There are many unknown factors at play due to covid. We ask for your ongoing patience with us and understanding as we navigate this situation and all of the ongoing adaptations.


We will plan on doing a MTB video! Each choreographer will film a video of their piece in their choice of location, style, costume, etc. These videos will be collected and compiled to create an entire “show” of stylized dance videos! PERFORMANCE:

We anticipate that there will still be COVID restrictions in February, so IF it looks like we can perform, we will plan on doing an adapted performance that will follow whatever covid mandates are in place.


Mandatory MTB 2021 Dates:

Sunday, January 10th – 11am-5pm – First Showing

Sunday, January 31st – 10pm-6pm – Second Showing

*Possible show dates: Either Feb. 17th-20th OR March 4th-7th  (to be confirmed soon)


Dancer Fee:

Due to escalating costs of performance space and other production fees, this year we are asking each dancer to pay a non-refundable commitment fee of $10 per piece. This will be due at the First Showing. (Example: 1 piece=$10, 2 pieces =$20, etc). If you are unable to pay the $10/piece commitment fee, please connect with KT at movethebutte@gmail.com about potential volunteer work/trade opportunities with MTB.


Please let us know if you have any questions!! Reach out to Choreographers asap if you want to be in their piece as pieces tend to fill up fast. And please TELL YOUR FRIENDS about the call for dancers!


Be well everyone! We hope to be together soon,

KT Folz & Adge Marz Lindsey
