I have been in Colorado Ballet with my Daughter almost 2 year . Come from Orlando , Fl My Daughter went to Russian Academy Of Ballet .It is the best Ballet School we have and experiences better than Colorado Ballet .We don’t like Colorado Ballet Academy.Colorado Ballet Academy Teachers Doesn’t like us too. Reason for doesn’t like Colorado Ballet Academy their ballet technique and vaganova technique not the same ... Also teachers are average !!! And their costumesand designers profloio are pretty average not for tall girls costumes. So they don’t like tall ballerina girls guess not able to perform either..They don’t care your daughter past talents and have ?! ..The believe their famous name and Academical things not good school sorry . I have bad experiences.Thanks .
Just so bummed that we weren't able to get in when we arrived 12 minutes late to the Nutcracker. We left home in plenty of time, but due to 4 accidents that showed up on our GPS, sitting in traffic 45 minutes to go 6 miles, then waiting and waiting to get into the parking garage, then waiting in line to pay for parking, then walking the 3 blocks, we arrived late. Our seats were at the top, free-standing seats in the Loge, so there wouldn't have been any problem to let us in except the usher would not let us in. When we were seated at the halfway point intermission, she stated she allowed "about 15 people" who were late comers before us to go in and view the ballet from our seats. Those were OUR SEATS!! While waiting the agonizing 30 plus minutes from the lobby, you could see the TV monitor by the bar, but the quality was terrible and you could only hear the orchestra if you stood against the wall, far from the one TV. I was beside myself with anger and disappointment that we could not just slip in and sit in our seats. There were at least 60 people who were late walking in with us, and those we hung out with in the lobby all stated how early they left and how accidents impeded them getting to the ballet on time. What we did see was great, and I still am so very disappointed that our night ended up the way it did because of an inconsiderate usher and some car crashes.
Great ballet company in Colorado. As someone who loves ballet but has only seen the Nutcracker several times, I was happy to learn upon moving to Denver that they have a ballet company which every year comes out with a full season comprised of classics as well as new works. I first saw the company perform at the Arvada Center for their "Evening Under the Stars" in which they danced selections from past seasons as well as some teasers from the current season. I finally got the chance to see a full performance when I went to see Alice in Wonderland at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Amazing show, funny and entertaining while also displaying the amazing talent and athleticism of the dancers. The sets were very creative and the orchestra was great too. It was great show for both adults and kids and I am not surprised to learn the performances were sold out. Now I can't wait to catch Swan Lake for next season!
We began going to the Colorado Ballet presents the Nutcracker at the Ellie Caulkin's Opera House 3 years ago, making it our newest family tradition, and we have yet to be disappointed. The Colorado Ballet has such graceful dancers and we are always mesmerized by their performances! If you're in the area around Christmas time, put Colorado Ballet's The Nutcracker on your "must see" list!
Could not contact when I went in they were a bit rude
