Since its formation on August 31, 1998, Longmont Dance Theatre Academy’s vision has been to develop students whose lives are enhanced through their experience with the ballet school, our faculty, and other artists. We are dedicated to providing excellence in dance training to a diverse body of students. Our comprehensive approach is based on the traditions of classical ballet and prepares students for the widest spectrum of opportunities within the artistic community and professional dance world. LDTA has a fantastic facility with sprung floors and is pleased to provide experienced and highly trained instructors for our students. Young dancers are able to develop their expertise in dance as a performance art in a healthy and energetic atmosphere.
Longmont Dance Theatre Academy (LDTA) is Longmont’s only pre-professional ballet school. We offer the very finest in classical dance training of all genres and believe it’s crucial to emphasize ballet technique while offering a wide curriculum of classical dance styles. 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 LDTA is so much more than a simple extracurricular activity.
Classical dance training through our Ballet Program 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.
The Ballet Program starts in third grade for most students and follows a progression of levels:
Intermediate Ballet I (age 8+)
Intermediate Ballet II (age 10+)
Intermediate Ballet III (age 11+)
Advanced Ballet I (age 11+)
Advanced Ballet II (age 12+)
Advanced Ballet III & Pre-Collegiate Ballet Intensive Program (age 13+)
For more information about the Ballet Program, check out our Academy Division.
In addition to the Ballet Program, LDTA offers a Choreograph Your Own Program. Aerial, Bollywood, Jazz, and Modern are being offered in addition to ballet during the 2021-22 academic session!
