Boulder Ballet

Founded in 1982 by Barbara Demaree and Wanda Tierney, Boulder Ballet has grown to become Boulder County's major professional dance company and school. Each year, Boulder Ballet reaches thousands through performances at historic Macky Auditorium on the C.U. campus, historic Boulder Theater, the Dairy Center for the Arts (where Boulder Ballet is one of three original resident organizations), and on tour. In March of 2009, Boulder Ballet made its New York City debut at the Ballet Builders Showcase of New Choreography at the Dicapo Opera House.

Since 1989, Boulder Ballet has enjoyed a partnership with the Boulder Philharmonic Orchestra in presenting classical ballets complete with professional scenery, costumes, lighting designs, and casts of up to 100 dancers. Past full-scale productions have included Coppélia, Giselle, Carmen, Firebird, Romeo and Juliet, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and the annual holiday tradition, The Nutcracker.

Past artistic directors include Milenko Banovich (formerly of Zagreb Ballet), Robin Haig (Royal Ballet), and John Prinz (American Ballet Theater). These artists, along with many virtuoso guest artists and teachers, have all contributed to Boulder Ballet's legacy.

Today Boulder Ballet is under the artistic direction of Ana Claire and Peter Davison. Combining decades of professional performing and teaching experience with a deep commitment to the Boulder community, Claire and Davison are uniquely qualified to lead Boulder Ballet into its next era. The current vision for Boulder Ballet builds on the accomplishments and knowledge gained through the company's twenty-six year history, and extends the possibilities of increased audiences and national attention by infusing the classical repertoire with original, theatrically driven ballets that are accessible to today's audiences.

Ticket sales make up only a small portion of the income necessary to support a professional ballet company. Corporate and individual donations, in-kind sponsorships, and grants enable Boulder Ballet to provide high quality ballet performances to the Boulder community and beyond. Boulder Ballet is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization, and all contributions are tax deductible as allowed by law.
