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, progressing ballet technique 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.
