Crested Butte's Principle Dance Academy

Arts Education

Crested Butte School of Dance is a registered nonprofit organization providing many opportunities to be involved in dance and the arts. We create a nurturing environment for our littlest stars and intensive instruction for serious students, making CBSD the principle dance academy of Crested Butte.

CBSD has been involved in the Crested Butte theater and arts community for more than 25 years. Our staff and dancers have participated in the choreography of theatrical shows and have designed mentoring programs. CBSD is the host of ‘Dance In the Mountains’, formerly Dansummer, one of Colorado’s oldest summer dance programs.


No matter what age or level of experience, the Crested Butte School of Dance can offer a fun and creative experience.

We provide a wide variety of classes like creative movement for toddlers, belly dancing intensives for teens and adults, advanced technique classes in ballet, contemporary and jazz, and fresh funky hip-hop for all ages!
