Relief & Recovery Fund – Join the Academy Team

Triple Your Impact and Support the Relief & Recovery Fund!

Join Academy staff, teachers and students as we keep Colorado Ballet 60 years strong! After canceling two productions this season and losing 60 percent of our ticketing revenue, we have launched the Relief & Recovery Fund with a goal of raising 3 million dollars to cover a portion of the lost ticketing revenue. Right now, any gift made to the Relief & Recovery Fund through November 15th will be tripled by a generous couple who want to inspire others to support the arts during this critical time. Visit the Relief & Recovery Fund to make a gift or join the Academy fundraising team and help us reach our goal of $10,000. Together we are strong!

Virtual Fall Semester Party

Our Academy Team is working on creating fun virtual social experiences for our Academy and Pre-Professional Division students. We will be offering a Zoom gathering for students to connect with their classmates, play some fun games and socialize. Stay tuned for more details!


Pre-Professional Division: Friday, October 23 
Academy: Saturday, November 7


CBA would like to invite students to dress up for their classes the week of October 26th-October 31st in celebration of Quaranteen-O-Ween. Students can wear a costume, do something fun with their hair, etc., but they must choose something that permits them to safely participate in class. Please email academy@coloradoballet.org with any questions!

Flu and common cold symptoms can be similar to COVID-19, but there are some differences. If your child is feeling sick or having difficulty breathing, you should call your primary care provider.
