As both a school and as a professional performing company, Canyon Concert Ballet (CCB), is dedicated to upholding values of equity, education, and artistic excellence in Northern Colorado.

Northern Colorado’s leading dance school since 1979, Canyon Concert Ballet has set the standard for classical and contemporary dance education and performance. Originally a performing extension of the school, CCB began performing The Nutcracker in conjunction with the Fort Collins Symphony in 1980. In the decades following, the school and company grew in both size and reputation, as CCB generated countless professional dancers and its expanding season of productions was received with critical acclaim. In recent years, the company of dancers has developed to include professional performers from around the world, making CCB Northern Colorado’s premier ballet company. CCB performs four productions annually, including The Nutcracker, a second full-length classical ballet in the spring, and two cutting-edge contemporary ballet programs in the fall and winter.

Canyon Concert Ballet’s mission as a nonprofit educational organization is to expand, nourish, and enrich the artistic opportunities in classical dance through training, performance, and community outreach in service to the Northern Colorado region. As a quality performing arts company and leading educational institution for students of dance, Canyon Concert Ballet provides both professional training and recreational dance opportunities for dancers of all ages, strengths, and abilities.

We provide the highest quality training to a diverse group of dancers, create a broad range of performance opportunities for dancers and audiences, and enrich Northern Colorado’s cultural climate with a diverse repertoire of artistry. CCB is a leader in Northern Colorado’s expanding arts community.

Home to Colorado State University, Fort Collins is recognized as a destination community with an established quality of life and relatively strong economy. Integral to the city’s reputation are the values and vitality that the arts, culture, and creative sector bring to the community.
