Children's Division

2020 Virtual Summer Classes

June 8 - July 31

Children’s Division classes are for children ages 3 through 8 years of age. Classes in this division include Creative Dance (Ages 3-5) Pre-Ballet (Ages 6-7) and Ballet Level 1 (Ages 7-8).

Considering the safety of all students, faculty, and staff, Colorado Ballet Academy has made the difficult decision to move all in person Summer Classes to virtual, online programs. CBA Instructors will be able to connect with students, offer excellent instruction and inspiring corrections! We are excited to bring you these outstanding classes and other innovative sessions to enhance your virtual summer dance experience!

NEW FOR SUMMER 2020:
Classes now offered in two 4-week sessions!
event June 8 – July 3   event July 6 – July 31

Please note- due to the extended Spring Semester, Virtual Summer Classes will now begin 1 week later than the original Summer Classes.

Students have the option of registering for one session or both to create greater ease with summer scheduling. Receive a 10% discount when signing up for both sessions of the same class.


Any tuition paid for the original, in-person Summer Classes can be applied to the Virtual Summer Classes. If you would not like to participate in the Virtual Summer Class alternative, please email academy@coloradoballet.org to withdraw.
