Dance Renaissance

McGlone ElementaryDance Renaissance is an after school residency that lasts 10-15 weeks, classes focus on creative movement and ballet. The students study a variety of dance concepts while working on spatial awareness, problem solving, and strengthening the body and brain. The program culminates with an "informance" for the parents, school, and community. Colorado Ballet provides students with dance wear and the opportunity to attend a Colorado Ballet performance at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Select Dance Renaissance students are invited to participate in a Summer Dance Camp at Colorado Ballet Studios, and one student is chosen annually for a full-year scholarship to Colorado Ballet Academy. Scholarship students have performed with the professional company in various productions, including The Nutcracker and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

The program will focus on the following dance concepts:

  • Size
  • Balance
  • Direction
  • Energy
  • Levels
  • Relationships
  • Pathways
  • Space
  • Weight
  • Time
