The Colorado Ballet Academy offers programs for participation in the Youth America Grand Prix Competition (YAGP) and the Denver Ballet Guild (DBG). These programs
are designed to further each student’s education and develop well-rounded, versatile dancers. CBA’s competition programs provide
high caliber one-on-one coaching as well as the experience of working with choreographers creating new works and master teachers
setting choreography in solo and ensemble work.
CBA’s new YAGP and DBG programs launched in the fall of 2016 with great success! Congratulations to our dancers!
