What is Backstage Barre:

Colorado Ballet’s Backstage Barre is dedicated to the philanthropy of classical ballet and contemporary dance through performances, education, and community engagement while inspiring and growing a NEW GENERATION and increasingly diverse audience base.

Upcoming Events:

Craft & Brews | November 3, 2018 6:30-9:00pm
Colorado Ballet’s The Armstrong Center for Dance, 1075 Santa Fe Dr

Nothing to prove, only to share.

Grab a specialty, craft brew and join the conversation as Local Comedian, Roger Haak ties together three unique Colorado “crafts” during a panel discussion. Colorado Ballet soloists discuss their art form with Ben Anderson, Ski Designer & Founder of Icelantic Skis and Kristin Adele, DCPA Actress & Playwright.

Enjoy three original beers crafted by Avery Brewing Company and a live performance by Colorado Ballet Company Dancers.
