Welcome to Colorado Conservatory of Dance!
At CCD, we believe every dancer deserves the absolute best dance education, regardless of age, ability, aspiration, or socio-economic status. Our program is designed to give students the highest quality dance education in both classic and contemporary styles in a friendly and warm environment. Our syllabus is designed to build strength and versatility in every dancer, allowing each dancer to work in the healthiest, most kinesthetically aware way. At CCD, we truly believe that dance is for everyone and that art can foster community, create positive influence, and inspire the individual, and our faculty, staff, and families reflect every aspect of that belief.
Colorado Conservatory of Dance is an anti-racist organization who supports BBIPOC, AAPI, and LGBTQIA+ people, as well as all people who have historically been marginalized, oppressed, or underrepresented in our society. We believe in respect for all perspectives, in the value of creativity, in the power of art, and in treating other humans with dignity and kindness. We will not be silent. We will use our platform to end discrimination in the arts.

Our 2020-2021 season will be a mixture of in-person and zoom classes. This allows both dancers and instructors alike to participate fully either in person on a limited basis, online, or a combination of both. While it’s our desire and plan to return to fully in-studio instruction and rehearsal as soon as possible, we will continue to follow the guidance of local, state, and federal health officials and eagerly await a world in which the COVID-19 virus is mitigated to an extent that will allow this. Our hybrid schedule will include an A and B rotating schedule. One week, a group of dancers will be in-person at CCD while the other dancers are conducting classes via Zoom. The following week, both groups will rotate to the opposite method of learning. We will attempt to pair families so their classes will be on the same rotation schedule. All students will also have the opportunity to attend all classes via Zoom only if this is what makes them most comfortable.
Getting Started at CCD
To register for classes in our Conservatory Program, please complete the Class Assessment Form and a member of our Staff will contact you to schedule your first assessment class. For dancers under the age of 6, they will be placed in the appropriate level without an assessment. This assessment class is designed to be an opportunity for your student to see if he or she enjoys the class, as well as an opportunity for a CCD Lead Faculty member to assess your student and place him/her in the correct level. After receiving your assessment, you can then enroll your student through your Dance Studio Pro portal.
To enroll in our Adaptive Dance Program, please contact CCD at 303.466.5685. Enrollment is based on the guidance of Heather Sutton and the needs of the student. All Adaptive Dance classes are held on Thursday afternoons.
For those 18+ that are interested in our Adult Program, our Adult Program runs the entire year and we welcome new students anytime. We offer classes both in-person and online through Zoom. You may find all our class times and offering above. Please complete our Free Trial Class submission form here, and we will get back to you ASAP. Your first class is always free!
When enrolling in classes, please take the time to read our School Policies & Information Page section as well as proper dress code for you or your dancer, so your student feels comfortable and prepared for their first class at CCD!
Upon registration, each student will pay a $35 Registration Fee, siblings will pay $10.
