2017/18

In my career I have yet to see a ballet school that can match Boulder Ballet. That may sound like an exaggeration, but I honestly have not encountered another ballet school that can so successfully train professionals while including students that may not have professional aspirations. –Ben Goodman

Boulder Ballet School provides quality ballet training for all ages in a uniquely artistic and creative atmosphere and is dedicated to helping students achieve technical excellence while nurturing their individual artistry. As a professional-track ballet school, Boulder Ballet serves students interested in dance as a career as well as those wanting to dance for fun in an atmosphere of excellence. It has been voted “Best Dance Studio” in the annual Boulder Weekly reader’s poll each year since 2008.

With their superb technical and performance abilities, many of our students have earned regional and national honors. The Florence Ruston Award for Overall Excellence in Dance has been awarded three times to Boulder Ballet School students. This award is presented at the annual Denver Ballet Guild Scholarship Competition to only one of the more than 250 participants from ballet schools throughout Colorado. Boulder Ballet School students have also won awards at the Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP), the world’s largest youth ballet and contemporary dance competition, including the Grand Prix (the highest award) at the Denver regional. To date, seven Boulder Ballet School students have been invited to perform at the YAGP finals in New York City along with the finest ballet students from around the world, and Boulder Ballet School’s team of teachers has earned the Best Teacher Award at the Denver regional. Boulder Ballet School alumni have gone on to dance with renowned companies such as American Ballet Theatre, American Repertory Ballet, Ballet British Columbia, Colorado Ballet, Eugene Ballet, Ballet West, Mark Morris Dance Group, Miami City Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theater, Royal Ballet, and Royal Swedish Ballet.
