Happy July friends! I can’t believe it is already July—it seems like yesterday our dancers took their final bow after Romeo & Juliet. But alas, that was nearly four months ago and we are now well underway with preparations for the coming season. Don’t forget, we open our season with Swan Lake in October—season subscriptions are on sale now!The dancers start back on July 19, and with that brings great energy and excitement to the building. As soon as their pointe shoes touch the floor we are in go-mode, gearing up for the Vail International Dance Festival on Aug. 8 at the Vilar Center in Beaver Creek. Emery LeCrone will be in Denver working with the dancers and I can’t wait to share some of the fun behind-the-scenes moments with you as we work toward the creation of the brand new ballet. If you have not yet purchased your tickets for Upclose: Premieres, you better do that now as this event is guaranteed to sell out. I can assure you that you don’t want to miss Colorado Ballet 8,000 feet high! Now that is ballet with altitude!
