Babs Case, Artistic Director
Babs Case is artistic director of Dancers’ Workshop in Jackson, Wyoming.  She has performed, choreographed, and taught modern dance throughout the U.S., Europe, Asia, Canada, and South America. She attributes her multidisciplinary approach to dance to her professional affiliations with the Harry Partch Foundation and Company, Richard Landry of the Philip Glass Ensemble, and Lincoln Center Institute and Obie award winning actor Bob Berky. She was the founding director of The Center for the Arts in Stuart, FL for 12 years.  Babs is a past beneficiary of National Endowment for the Arts funding and a two-time recipient of both the Florida and Wyoming Fellowship Awards for Choreography.  In 1992, she was awarded an Indo-American Research Fulbright fellowship to study dance, theatre and visual arts in India. As an educator, Babs has taught at universities throughout the U.S. and offers multidisciplinary residencies in schools and workshops for at-risk youth. In 1999, she moved to Wyoming and formed Wyoming’s first modern dance company, Contemporary Dance Wyoming, which tours regionally performing lecture demonstrations in schools and formal concerts for the public.  Most recently her contributions to the arts were recognized by receiving the Cultural Council of Jackson Hole Award for Creativity in 2009, and by receiving the Wyoming Governor’s Arts Award for 2013.
