  • New Students: Students who did not audition for the 2020 Colorado Ballet Summer Intensive are encouraged to submit a video with their registration form. Video auditions can be recorded as early as October 2019, or consist of a minute of center work in your house. If students do not have an audition video, they will be placed via their training history and a photo. Students will be moved to the level that best suits them during the first week of classes. Please fill out the Registration Form above.
  • Auditioned for Original SI: If you have auditioned for the original SI, but did not register, please fill out the Registration Form above.

Remaining funds will be returned in the original form of payment or placed on account to be used for CBA Fall Registration.
  • Scholarship Recipients: If you were offered a scholarship for the original intensive, you will be eligible for the same percentage scholarship applied to the 2020 Virtual Intensive. However, we ask that you consider paying in full to help support the future of Colorado Ballet Academy. Your support, in any amount, will be immensely appreciated as we move forward through these challenging times.
