Colorado Ballet Academy’s summer classes go virtual

Summer Intensive, youth program, camps among online offerings

Posted

The typical summer programs offered at Denver’s Raydean Acevedo Colorado Ballet Academy will take place virtually this year, according to a news release.

Academy staff reimagined every aspect of its summer programming so it could continue engaging and educating the artists of tomorrow. It reduced tuition, modified each program to ensure an optimal virtual experience and opened the Summer Intensive program to give dancers across the nation the opportunity to train, regardless of their original audition status.

To elevate this summer’s virtual Summer Intensive, Colorado Ballet’s artistic leaders, including artistic director Gil Boggs and ballet mistresses Sandra Brown and Maria Mosina, will teach alongside John Gardner, Amanda McKerrow and Colorado Ballet staff to provide a special training experience for all students.

Young Dancer Workshop students can take level-specific classes in ballet technique, pre-pointe, creative choreography, jazz and conditioning for dancers. Surprise guests will make appearances for career talks and interactive virtual conversations.

“Everyone at CBA has worked very hard to ensure our students have a joyful and uplifting virtual experience with us,” Colorado Ballet Academy Director Erica Fischbach said in the news release. “We are dedicated to continuing to provide excellence in ballet education and training and excited to have Colorado Ballet’s inspirational artistic leaders join our roster of renowned instructors this summer.”For information about Colorado Ballet Academy’s programs or classes, call 303-339-1623 or email academy@coloradoballet.org.
