Student Matinee

The day before a production’s premiere, our doors are open for students to see the final dress rehearsal in the beautiful Ellie Caulkins Opera House. For a heavily discounted price, student groups are invited to experience ballet first hand, complete with full costumes, make-up, sets, lighting and sound. Then the curtain opens and the magic begins!

To reserve a spot for any of the productions, your school must fill out the form at the bottom of the page (emails will not be considered). A 25% deposit will be required upon approval. If you have any questions, please e-mail Cassie Wilson at cassie.wilson@coloradoballet.org.
