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+)

In addition to the Ballet Program, LDTA offers a Choreograph Your Own Program. Aerial, Afro-Pop, Bollywood, and Modern are being offered in addition to ballet during the 2021-22 academic session! We’d love to talk to you more about our programs.
