Author Teresa Funke Discusses Women’s History, ‘Dancing’ On Stage

Kendra Spanjer
Author Teresa Funke wrote the book “Dancing in Combat Boots” about women’s experiences during WWII. She’ll perform a one-woman show based on that book March 9 & 10 at Bas Bleu Theatre in Fort Collins.

It’s not often that a writer and historian steps over into the world of acting. But that’s what Teresa Funke has done with her 2007 book “Dancing in Combat Boots”. It presents 10 fictional stories based off women’s real experiences at home and abroad during World War II. During March, which is Women’s History Month, KUNC’s Grace Hood sat down to talk with Funke about her upcoming play and book--and one thing you may not know about Greeley’s past.
