Project Funway Judge
Colin Meiring is the artistic director and choreographer for the Vail Valley Academy of Dance, and Project Funway 2022 was his first time on the judging panel. A long-time fan and spectator
of the event, Meiring wanted to get more involved in the cause because he has seen the impact that the Education Foundation of Eagle County (EFEC) is having first-hand.
“I’ve definitely seen the invaluable impact on the front lines of performing arts students who are boldly expressing who and what they are,” Meiring said.
“I think this is a direct result of EFEC ensuring that every Eagle County School is staffed with a behavioral counselor. Judging is a way of giving back to my community and continuing to inspire youth to be the best they can be.”
As a youth educator and motivator, Meiring is most excited to judge the Youth and Teen categories, and to see how the students channel their imaginations into their clothes.
