Established in 1961 by Denver Natives Freidann Parker and Lillian Covillo, Colorado Ballet (originally called the Colorado Concert Ballet) is now one of the state’s oldest and most successful arts institutions and the only one of its size and stature to present world-class ballet and innovative dance. For the past 56 years, Colorado Ballet has been a seminal institution in the Rocky Mountain region and an essential part of the Denver community. Under the leadership of Gil Boggs since 2006, it is a nationally and internationally recognized regional dance company lauded for its superb artistry and expansive repertoire.
Colorado Ballet’s impact can be felt through our annual holiday tradition The Nutcracker, to training thousands of eager dance students in our world-class Academy, to educational programs that serve tens of thousands of disadvantaged students, to presenting technically-challenging classical ballet and innovative, contemporary dance to over 80,000 Denverites and visitors each year.
We hope you will consider joining the Freidann and Lillian Legacy Society to help ensure this vital company continues to thrive for years to come.
