Colorado Ballet Academy continues to assess the safest way to provide exceptional dance education to our families. At this point, considering the safety of all students, families, faculty and staff, we have made the decision to continue all training on our virtual, online platform until further notice. Adult Open Virtual Classes are designed to give students social connection, excellent instruction and corrections from a dedicated CBA instructor.

Previously purchased classes (online drop-in registration or punch cards) are not valid for online classes at this time. Any in-person classes purchased online during the closure will be honored once we return to classes in the studios.
