About Centennial State Ballet
Centennial State Ballet was born 18 years ago with a vision to bring classical ballet to the Longmont community through the staging of much-loved ballets and the creation of new ballet repertoire.
Our mission is simply stated, but not simple to achieve: At Centennial State Ballet, we strive to enliven and elevate the human spirit by means of dance, specifically the perfect form of dance known as ballet. A technique of movement that was born in the courts of kings and queens, ballet has survived to this day to become one of the most elegant, most adaptable, and most powerful means of human communication.
Centennial State Ballet students are instilled from the very beginning with the art of and passion for performing. Being “on the stage” is the goal and dream of most students. Hard work, dedication to the art, and the joy of dance culminate in beautiful performances three times each, year as well as during Annual Recitals. Centennial State Ballet presentations demonstrate the schools’ commitment to purity of form, dedication to training, and honing skills for dancers of all ages. Centennial State Ballet strives to engage the creative heart of each dancer and audience member during our performances.
