The Canyon Concert Ballet was a part of Streetmosphere’s first year when their traditional venue, the Lincoln Center was under renovation. After two years off, the ballet decided to audition again this year because they so enjoyed reaching the community in this unique way. As Executive Director Kim Lang states, “Streetmosphere is a great program to expose all kinds of arts to all kinds of people. It doesn’t take long for someone passing by to be drawn in to the beauty of art.”
The Canyon Concert Ballet has grown over the past 33 years to a company of nearly 20 dancers and instructors. It is also the leading dance school in Northern Colorado, with over 400 students in two locations. On Saturday afternoon, the ballet will present three performing groups: The Canyon Concert Youth Ensemble with students 6-15, the competition troupe of teenage, advanced students, and the Canyon Concert Ballet Company itself. We look forward to their return.
