It's almost too easy to say that the Arvada Center's production of the Disney musical "Tarzan" won't mean a thing if it ain't got some swing.
Which is why flight director Geddy Webb is kneeling on stage, talking with choreographer Kitty Skillman Hilsabeck early one recent Friday evening. The dark-haired, focused dancer (who'll portray Leopard in the show) is suspended a couple of feet above the main stage floor.
Hilsabeck and the other performers who will arc above the jungle floor are in the second of four days of intensive flight training with Webb. <read more>
