Centennial State Ballet performances feature live musical accompaniment, full sets, costumes, props and lighting. Dancers experience the joy of movement and on-stage performance as early as age 5 through their high school years.
Our mission is simply stated, but it is not simple to achieve: We strive to enliven and elevate the human spirit by means of dance, specifically the perfect form of dance known as ballet. A technique of movement that was born in the courts of kings and queens, ballet has survived to this day to become one of the most elegant, most adaptable and most powerful means of human communication.
We are located in the heart of Longmont, Colorado and celebrate the art of dance through our numerous performances and outreach events each season. Our 2018 – 2019 performance season features The Secret Garden, a full performance of The Nutcracker, and our spring gala performance of A Midsummer Nights Dream. All performances feature live music and this season will include opera and piano in addition to our live orchestra.
Longmont Dance Theatre Academy, the official training ground for CSB dancers, is proud to be the premier pre-professional ballet school in Longmont since 1998. We offer the finest in classical dance training of all genres with performance at the core of each dancer’s training and development. LDTA offers beginner through advanced and pre-professional dance classes. The open division includes classes in a variety of dance styles and for ages three to adult. The pre-collegiate ballet intensive program allows high school students to focus on the art of dance for several hours each afternoon to master skills in ballet, as well as work in choreography, costuming, stage make-up and more. Academy students learn dedication to the art of dance and are empowered to work hard in class and in life. Under the direction of Executive Artistic Director, Kristin Kingsley, students at all levels are given the opportunity to perform in recitals, full length ballet performances with live orchestra and community events across Boulder County and the state of Colorado.
