Description: An interactive light installation that uses sensors and lights to help visitors perform their own "Denver Dance". As a dancer operates the system, a variety of illustrations and slogans light up on the stainless steel mirror, providing amusement and faux guidance - whimsically defining the three areas of Denver dance: commerce, nature and sport. The installation is adjacent to the southbound boarding area.
