Colorado Ballet consists of 31 professional dancers with diverse backgrounds. The dancers come from all over the world, including Japan, Russia, Cuba, Canada, France, Ireland, Brazil, Italy, Ecuador, Mexico and the United States. Additionally, the Company has more than 25 members of the Studio Company, which provides young dancers with training and performance opportunities as a start into a professional career in ballet.

Each season, the Company performs a varied season of classical and contemporary ballets in Denver. In 2009, Colorado Ballet received the Colorado Masterpieces program to tour Colorado's Front Range. The program was funded by the Colorado Council on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts through their American Masterpieces: Three Centuries of Artistic Genius initiative.

In August 2014, Colorado Ballet moved into its new home The Armstrong Center for Dance in Denver's Art District on Santa Fe near Downtown Denver.  Click here to read more.  In 2016, Colorado Ballet's The Nutcracker was named the best-loved Nutcracker in the 10th Annual Goldstar National Nutcracker Award contest, winning this coveted honor in a field that included more than 80 other productions throughout the U.S..

Colorado Ballet - Where Athlete Meets Art

At the heart of each dancer is an athlete, one who endures rigorous training, pain and stamina to perform for each one of us. Their strength is seen in every ripple of muscle, in their jumps, and in the poses they hold. With Colorado Ballet's current marketing campaign, we want people to see dancers for who they really are--athletes.
