A New Home for Colorado Ballet

Moving into the Future

For the first time in its 53 year history, Colorado Ballet will own its home.  In January 2013, we purchased a building located at 11th and Santa Fe with a bridge loan (1075 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204).  We are currently renovating the 100-year-old building and move late in the summer of 2014.  The renovated 30,000 square foot building will give the professional Company and the Academy room to grow. 

Colorado Ballet will continue to present performances in the Ellie Caulkins Opera House and the Newman Center for the Performing Arts, but its new rehearsal and training facility will:

About the Building

Colorado Ballet's new homeThe new building will have eight state-of-the-art professional dance studios and improved amenities for the professional Company including locker rooms and showers as well as a physical therapy room.  Colorado Ballet will also have its own black box theater performance space, The Armstrong Theater with 150 telescoping seats. 

The new building and increased number of studios will allow the Academy to offer more dance classes for adults and children.  Our new building will have safer, more convenient student drop-off and increased parking in the neighborhood.  The new Academy location will also feature a parent and student lounge and a retail dance boutique.

Anchoring the north end of Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe, our new building is located in a thriving cultural neighborhood.  Our new location will increase awareness about the Company, Academy and our nationally-renowned education and outreach programs.

Colorado Ballet’s new home will encourage world-class dance to flourish in Colorado and enhance the training of the next generation of dancers.
