Colorado Ballet Academy's Summer Children's Programs start on Monday, June 2 and run throughout the summer until August 14! The classes are for children ages 3-16 and will take place at Colorado Ballet's studios.  Colorado Ballet will move to its new location this summer, but for now, all classes and intensives will take place at our current studios at 1278 Lincoln Street, Denver, CO 80203.  We will let you know on our website, social media channels and via e-mail when we move to our new location at 11th and Santa Fe Drive later this summer.
