What Community Says
In my opinion, CCD is the finest ballet studio available in this area! My daughter has been dancing at Colorado Conservatory of Dance for the past nine years. I cannot say enough good things about this studio. They have wonderful teachers who teach her the techniques of classical ballet and the art of the dance. Not only do they teach their students how to be a good dancer, they also teach them how to be good citizens. The dancers there have opportunities to experience the professional side of the dance and have outstanding choreographers, teachers and coaches.
