Aspen Santa Fe Ballet School is committed to providing high quality dance education to children of all ages and is currently operating under strict guidelines that adhere to the highest of health and safety standards, with reduced class sizes, mask requirements, and staggered start times that allow for thorough cleaning protocols.
We are now accepting registration applications for Summer 2021. The new enrollment process, instituted during the pandemic, will continue. Parents are asked to sign students up for a waitlist for the class they are interested in attending on or before May 1st. Once the class status is confirmed, families will be notified and the student will be moved to “enrolled” status.
To ensure a safe environment for quality dance education, current drop off and pick up procedures will continue with wellness checks for students before class.
Please keep in mind that our class sizes remain limited to 25% capacity. In this complicated time of Covid-19, we have limited space to move students to higher levels but will make every effort to do so on a space available basis. Please help your child understand that they are not being held back, nor have they fallen behind. Rest assured our faculty will continue teaching students according to their ability.
All of us at Aspen Santa Fe Ballet are grateful for your participation and support. These are difficult times, especially for children. We appreciate the opportunity to provide our communities’ youth an outlet for artistic expression and instill in them the transformative power of dance education.
Aspen Santa Fe Ballet School, serving over 500 students through a network of satellite locations in Colorado and New Mexico, instills the appreciation of dance and encourages first-hand participation. Founded by longtime Aspenite Bebe Schweppe in 1991, the School formed the genesis of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet and continues to act as the organization’s core and foundation.
Every dance aspirant—from toddler to pre-professional to adult exerciser—can find discipline, challenge, new friends and fun in a range of classes offered in the School’s rich curriculum. Ballet, jazz, and modern instruction is delivered with high-quality standards by the School’s vetted and credentialed professional faculty.
Students learn in small classes in a supportive environment that fosters confidence and individual accomplishment as well as technique and artistry. Members of the professional company as well as world-renowned master teachers are regularly invited to teach.
