We believe that training in all types of dance provides the versatility necessary for our young ballerinas and male dancers while encouraging a broad understanding of dance as an art form. LDTA accepts students of all races, genders, ages, and national origins.


Thank you for choosing one of the best ballet schools for classical dance in the state of Colorado.  The dance training you receive at Longmont Dance Theatre Academy (LDTA) is so much more than a simple extracurricular activity.

Classical dance training is a methodical, graded process that requires a high level of commitment from parents/guardians and students.  It also requires self-discipline rarely matched by any other endeavor.  Students become an active partner in the process, developing a respect for the classical dance art form.

Our mission is simply stated but it is not simple to achieve: we strive to enliven and elevate the human spirit by means of dance, specifically the perfect form of dance known as ballet. A technique of movement that was born in the courts of kings and queens, ballet has survived to this day to become one of the most elegant, most adaptable, and most powerful means of human communication.
