Colorado ballet covid attendance theater policy

Our plan to keep our patrons, dancers, and staff safe this season

Ensuring the health and safety of our dancers, staff and patrons is our top priority.

To protect audiences and the community from illness and to slow transmission of COVID-19, Colorado Ballet
has joined the resident companies of the Denver Performing Arts Complex in implementing the following health
and safety policies:

  • All patrons 12+ must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with an FDA or WHO-approved vaccine before attending performances. “Fully vaccinated” means two weeks after a person’s second dose in a two-dose series and two weeks after
    a single-dose vaccine.
  • All audience members 2+ must wear masks unless enjoying refreshments in designated areas. Food and beverages will not be permitted inside the theater.
  • Children under the age of 12 must instead provide proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within six hours of the performance start time that was administered by an official testing center. Home testing kit results will not be accepted for entry.

This policy goes into effect October 1 and is in place until further notice. Additional details on the vaccine
verification and entry process are under development and will be communicated to our patrons in advance
of your performance date.

Ticket holders who do not comply with this policy will not be admitted. We will offer full refunds and on account credits for patrons who are unable to adhere to these policies. Please contact Colorado Ballet Patron Services to discuss your ticketing options – (303) 837-8888 ext. 2, open Monday - Friday from 10am to 4pm.

We're all in this together. We can't thank you enough for your support as we continue to ensure the healthy and safety of our dancers, staff and patrons.
