Open Division (ages 0-17)
The Longmont Dance Theatre Academy is Longmont’s only pre-professional ballet school and emphasizes ballet technique. The Open Division was introduced to encourage students to expand their dance knowledge by offering a wide curriculum of dance styles. We currently offer classes in Aerial, Boys Dance, Jazz, and Modern.
Students may participate in the Open Division in addition to or independently of the Ballet Program. LDTA 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 Open Division instructors are excited to teach sound technique while fostering the love of dance in all art forms.
Students enrolled in the Open Division have the opportunity to perform in the Annual Recital at the end of each year.
