Colorado Ballet’s videographer, Taylor Keating, will film each class separately and will edit the segments together to create a performance video. Out of town students and those who would like to remain virtual have the option to submit a video of themselves in their home space.

The performance video release date is scheduled for Friday, May 28. We hope that everyone can keep their calendars clear for this exciting opportunity!
