(ages 5-18 & Adults)
Student Open Division (Ages 6-18)
The Longmont Dance Theatre is Longmont’s only pre-professional ballet school and emphasizes ballet technique. The Student Open Division was introduced to encourage students to expand their dance knowledge by offering a wide curriculum of dance styles. Students may participate in the Open Division in addition to or independently of the Ballet Program. LDT believes that training in all types of dance provides the versatility necessary for our young students, while encouraging a broad understanding of dance as an art form. Our Student Open Division instructors are excited to teach sound technique while fostering the love of dance in all art forms. Placement in the Student Open Division classes is based on the age of the student as of the 15th of the first full month of classes. The age guidelines for initial placement are guidelines and actual placement is subject to level appropriateness based on teacher and school director evaluation. Students enrolled in the Open Division have the opportunity to perform in the Annual Recital at the end of each year.
Adult/Teen Open Division (Ages 13-Adult)
Although the Longmont Dance Theatre is Longmont’s only pre-professional ballet school and emphasizes ballet technique, LDT has many wonderful teachers in all different dance styles and is so excited to offer fine classes in all dance disciplines for our Teen/Adult students. We are very proud of our excellent adult program and encourage all students to try many different dance styles. Whether a novice or an experienced dancer, students will find a class level to suit their needs. Placement in the Adult/Teen Open Division classes is based on the interest of the student and requires no placement class. Students enrolled in the Adult/Teen Open Division have the opportunity to perform in the Annual Recital at the end of each year.
