quality ballet training and performance opportunities for dancers of all ages in the greater Denver area
Dance is one of mankindís most primal urges. Channeling it into a discipline such as ballet stimulates creativity, imagination, and freedoms gained only through movement. The regimented structure of ballet also fosters respect and a sense of history, while teaching advanced motor skills, rhythm, coordination, and flexibility.
For more than 25 years, the Academy of Classical Ballet has been training dancers of all ages to be the best they can be, using teaching techniques that respect anatomy, emphasize correct alignment and posture, and avoid injuries caused by improper practices such as forced turnout.
The philosophy of the Academy of Classical Ballet is to allow each student to advance at their own pace, respecting the studentsí ages and abilities, in an atmosphere of encouragement, discipline, and warmth.
Performance is a valuable part of every dancerís education, and all students have the opportunity to perform in the two classical ballets mounted each year by the school.
In addition to the childrenís curriculum which allows students as young as four to work on basic ballet movement and continuing through advanced classes, a unique feature of the Academy of Classical Ballet is our fully featured adult dance program. Beginning and continuing students of all ages are welcomed. Youíre never too old to take your place at the barre. Adult students have the opportunity to learn partnering, pointe work, menís technique, and appear in the two annual performances.
