Colorado Ballet Academy Closed through April 18
March 20, 2020
Dear Colorado Ballet Academy Students and Families,
In light of the current COVID-19 situation and following guidelines set forth by the state and nationally, Colorado Ballet Academy will remain closed through April 18th.
We understand the serious effects this will have on our Artists, School, Faculty and Students. All of us are waiting to see how our lives will be impacted by this situation. Our top priority is keeping our students and communities safe. Many employment sectors are taking a ‘hit,' and the performing arts are at great risk. Performance revenue and class fees are two major income streams for Colorado Ballet. We are doing our best to support our artists, faculty and staff as well as our students during this time.
As the situation continues to develop, we will be assessing our ability to safely open our doors again to our students. We are currently planning for three possible scenarios, all dependent on restrictions mandated by the Governor. We are considering our options of returning April 20th, May 11th and, in the worst case, not returning until our summer sessions begin in June. As of now our Summer Camps and Summer Intensives will remain as scheduled.
During the closures, we will be offering online options for classes for all of our students to remain active and in-shape while practicing proper social distancing. Many of our teachers have already offered short routines on our Facebook and Instagram pages. Be sure to follow for more fun updates! In the coming weeks we will be sending out full length, level appropriate classes taught by our CBA faculty.
We understand that this situation is impacting everyone, including our families. As the situation continues to unfold, we will work to provide financial options that are equitable for all families while keeping the best interest of the entire Colorado Ballet community in mind. When a final decision has been made regarding our date to reopen we will be in touch with detailed options.
We are heartbroken to be away from our beloved CBA students and families for such a long period of time. Our Colorado Ballet community is strong, and we are confident that the support of our amazing families, faculty and staff will carry us through this uncertain time.
Thank you for your support and dedication to Colorado Ballet Academy.
