About our Studio Company
Established in 1993, our Studio Company gives upper level students significant performing opportunities throughout the year, including two annual concerts presented to the public in February and May, as well as performing in CCD’s The Nutcracker, and lecture demonstrations to Broomfield and Boulder County elementary schools.
Studio Company dancers maintain classical and contemporary repertoire, rehearsing and studying 20-25 hours per week from August to June. This group of dedicated dancers is also individually coached in preparing classical variations for the Denver Ballet Guild Young Dancers Competition held each March.
Studio Company Auditions for the 2020-2021 Season will be held on Tuesday, September 1 during Studio Company Rehearsal time. Our Mandatory Kick Off Meeting will be held on Thursday, September 3, also during Studio Company Rehearsal time via Zoom.
