The Colorado Ballet Academy opened online registration for the 2016-2017 session of dance classes for children and adults. The session begins on August 22 and includes the Ballet Program, Pre-professional Division and Adult and Teen Open Program.
The Ballet Program includes dance classes for toddlers through teens in creative movement, pre-ballet, ballet, tap, modern, jazz, yoga, Pilates and more.
Colorado Ballet Academy students registered for the 2016-2017 session will have the opportunity to audition for roles in Colorado Ballet’s 2016 production of The Nutcracker and 2017 production of The Little Mermaid. In addition, students in various levels will have the opportunity to participate in the Academy winter performance of Les Patineurs and the Academy spring performance of Coppélia.
Colorado Ballet’s Pre-Professional Division provides a necessary base to ease the transition from student to professional dancer in a focused, nurturing environment. In a small and personal setting of up to 15 dancers, students participate in 28 hours of class per week, Monday-Saturday. The audition-only program is geared toward developing the whole artist offering classes beyond dance technique to create well-rounded dancers ready for the professional ballet world. For more information about auditioning, visit www.coloradoballet.org/preprofessional.
In addition to the Ballet Program and Pre-professional Division, the Academy offers an Adult and Teen Open Program with classes for various skill levels in ballet.
All classes will take place at Colorado Ballet’s studios at the Armstrong Center for Dance, 1075 Santa Fe Drive, in Denver, CO.
