Parking information at Colorado Ballet's new home
At Colorado Ballet’s new home, similar to our current situation, all parking spots in the adjacent lot are reserved and assigned to specific dancers and staff. Dancers and staff may leave and come back throughout the day, so please do not take a spot just because it appears to be free. The new location offers much safer Academy student drop off and pick up. Academy families are welcome to circle the lot while picking up their children as long as they do not block the lot.
Our new location offers an abundance of free parking throughout the neighborhood. Santa Fe Drive has free 2 hour parking. North of 11th Avenue, parking is free for 1 hour. Kalamath Street south of 11th Avenue offers free parking all day. Surrounding residential neighborhoods also offer free parking all day. Please watch for signs around street sweeping days and other parking restrictions.
