Mission

CSDT directors Emily Murawski, Jordan McHenry, Beth Carlson

Colorado Springs Dance Theatre (CSDT) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that promotes dance in the Pikes Peak Region. Our mission is to promote a diverse range of world-class dance events that cross generations, cultures, and classes while ensuring that it reaches the most underserved sectors of our community. We nurture young dancers by providing educational and performance opportunities that include master classes and scholarship programs. We extend dance to the underserved by providing free or reduced-price performance tickets to students and adults who might otherwise not be able to attend a live performance.

Founded over forty-three years ago by Barbara Kline and a dedicated group of volunteers, Colorado Springs Dance Theatre is a grass-roots arts organization that has showcased professional, world-class dance to the Pikes Peak region, exposing local communities to internationally renowned dance. Now in our 5th decade of community service, CSDT has hosted over 100 of the world’s pre-eminent dance companies including Dance Theatre of Harlem, Paul Taylor Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and the Martha Graham Dance Company. More recent seasons have included sold-out shows by Keigwin + Company and Ailey II.
