We look forward to partnering with you to uplift the Crested Butte and Gunnison Valley communities!

The Crested Butte School of Dance is entering its 40th year of serving the community through dance in 2023. Shelly Clements stepped into the role of Executive & Artistic Director in July 2022 and has been hard at work shaping school culture and creating community partnerships and access to dance for all.  

The generosity of sponsors allows CBSOD to focus on our mission, expand and update ongoing programming, offer professional development to our staff and board, and offer outreach programs throughout the Gunnison Valley. We offer our annual Sponsors public recognition at all events, on our website, and in the CB newspaper,  and tiered benefits packages such as tickets with preferred seating, mention on Move the Butte t-shirts, complimentary custom dance class, and of course, our heartfelt thank you.

How Your Sponsorship Helps

Outreach Programs

We believe that dance should not be confined to a studio or theater but should go outside the traditional walls to open up dance empowerment in unconventional spaces to include true inclusion and diversity for all.

Crested Butte Dance Collective

School of Dance values adults in dance!  Sponsorships will support teacher education, aerial program development, and adult scholarship programs.  These funds support local events such as Vinotok, CBDC Fall Show, and Move the Butte.

Guest Artists

We hire guest artists for master classes and workshops to offer enrichment and comprehensive learning opportunities for our teachers, students, and community.

Scholarship Program

We provide scholarships to local families and students who require and request assistance.

Inclusive Programming

Your sponsorship will help CBSOD pursue inclusivity on a valley-wide and then state-wide spectrum.

State of the Art Performances

CBSOD and longtime community partner Center for the Arts offer professional-level dance performances that bring the entire community together each year.  Your sponsorship helps provide access to state-of-the-art shows in our rural mountain town so that we can say, “Come for the snow; stay for the show!”
