Spring 2018 Semester Registration closes January 23, 2018.
Limited availability for mid-semester enrollment in specific levels and classes, see below for registration.

 

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 the spring 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.
