CABW 029: Uniting Community Through The Arts

On this episode, we have A LOT of fun talking (and even singing!) as we spend time with Jill Van Orden, founder of Arts Reach Center and Jalyn Webb, owner and director of The Academy by Divabee. 

After moving to Fort Collins in 1999, “Miss Jill” made quick connections into the Arts and soon became a much sought after and loved free-lance choreographer for local high schools and other local performing arts organizations.  In 2012, Jill founded her non-profit organization, Arts Reach Center, Inc. offering year-round performing arts opportunities both in her studio and in many area public schools. Through Arts Reach Center, Jill has produced and directed over 40 productions at local performance venues and is best known for the inclusive, thoughtful, and supportive environment she creates with each and every cast while teaching performance skills, developing self-confidence, and life-skills to each and every child. 

A favorite performer and vocal coach throughout Colorado for the past 25 years, Jalyn Webb has an impressive list of performance and directing accolades on stage including performing as the National Anthem Singer for the Colorado Avalanche.  As the owner and director of The Academy by Divabee as well as teaching Music Theatre at the University of Northern Colorado, Jalyn is an incredible vocal and stage coach and instructor for kids of all ages and adults.

Together, these two powerhouses of talent and instruction are joining forces to continue to give back and provide quality performing arts education for the Fort Collins community.
