About

Colorado Ballet Academy Pre-Professional Division is a daytime training program for career track students ages 14-20. The Academy’s Pre-Professional Division provides the necessary training to transition students from the classroom to professional dancers and is geared toward developing ballet artists ready to take on the challenges of dance in the 21st century.

  • Students must either be enrolled in an online academic program or have graduated high school.
  • Acceptance into this program is by audition.

Assessment for contracts with the Colorado Ballet

All Pre-Professional Division students are given the opportunity to work with Colorado Ballet’s artistic leaders, and qualified students are given first priority to openings in the Colorado Ballet Studio Company.
