The Academy provides training to students starting at age 1 ½ and utilizes the most current standards of ballet training. The Academy begins teaching students from ages 3 through 6 for creative dance and pre-ballet, two classes that lay the foundation for further study of classical ballet. Beginning at age 7, students are placed in Level 1 and advance according to age, experience, and ability.  Our curriculum is designed to guide students from their first introduction to the art through a full course of ballet study.  During their time here, students will take classes in technique, pointe work, pas de deux, modern, jazz as well as vital conditioning classes.  Click here for class descriptions.

For Parent Tot, Creative Dance and Pre Ballet students register per semester with a performance at the end of each term. For our Ballet Levels 1-7 registration is for the entire year, class times will remain the same from the fall to the spring term and all prices are listed represent the tuition for the year-long program.  Please click here for more information on tuition reduction and scholarships. All classes will take place at the Armstrong Center for Dance, 1075 Santa Fe Drive, Denver, CO 80204.

Colorado Ballet Academy is awarded Chapter 115 of the National Honors Society for Dance!

Students in grades 6-12 are invited to apply.  Benefits of National Honors Society for Dance Arts:  Students deserve the honor and prestige that comes from their achievement in dance.  Many students are working hard on academics and leadership while perfecting their dance craft not only at school but also outside of school.  The personal gratification that students receive from being inducted into the NHSDA is a boost to their self-esteem.  It is a win-win for all; the student, the school, and the field.
