Young dancers experience an introduction to intensive ballet training during Colorado Ballet Academy’s Young Dancer Workshop. Students participate in daily ballet classes with additional classes in pre-pointe, young men’s classes, character, modern, choreography, body conditioning and more. Working closely with the accomplished Colorado Ballet Academy faculty and guest instructors from CBA’s Summer Intensive, students reinforce a strong ballet technique in a focused and encouraging environment. Each Young Dancer Workshop session culminates in a performance presentation in our Black Box Theater.
