The Backstage program is part of Colorado Ballet Auxiliary’s educational program offerings.  Building off of the Esprit de Corps program (for children in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades), the Backstage program continues to provide the opportunity to experience the magic of ballet with their peers, to make new friends, and to learn more about dance and the arts while adding new “behind the scenes” opportunities with Colorado Ballet staff and dancers.  The Backstage program is designed for children/teens in 6th, 7th, or 8th grade during the 2017-2018 calendar year.

The Backstage program is revamped for the 2017-18 program year.  Understanding that families are balancing a number of different school and extracurricular activities, we have transitioned to an “a la carte” (or pick-and-pay) model for the ballet performance offerings.

2017-18 Program Registration Deadline: The program registration deadline is Wednesday, November 15, 2017.
