And then a trip out to Red Rocks with Ginger White, the Denver art scene with Alex Bennett from Meow Wolf; Mickela Mallozzi, multiple Emmy Award-winning host of Bare Feet on PBS, discusses the cultural importance of dance around the world, and how it drives her travel choices, with a few surprises.
