“Audiences unaccustomed to seeing such inventive movement generated from what could be considered limitation may find themselves re-evaluating their own ideas of artistic perfection.”
Lucia Maro on Axis Dance Company, Chicago Tribune






CSDT dancers perform from 7:30-7:50 in the Silver Room.




Get ready for one of the best parties of the year! The 2019 Artini, the official kickoff for Arts Month, will be held on Friday, September 27th from 5:30-8:30PM at The Mining Exchange Hotel (and the adjacent Gold Room) in downtown Colorado Springs. Hosted annually by the Cultural Office of the Pikes Peak Region, the Artini is a FREE, community celebration with live entertainment on multiple stages, lots of mixing & mingling, and the opportunity to sample signature martinis created by some of the area’s top mixologists. Art + Martini = Artini!






Meet Kaley Corinaldi

Kaley is one of last season’s Esther Geoffrey scholarship recipients. She was chosen for the $500 scholarship in our Jazz division. Kaley will also help us launch our program Pivot. She will visit local school children to share how dedicating herself to dance has changed her life and added value to her education.

*Look out as we introduce you to all of last season’s winners throughout the course of the year.

From The Archives

Did you know that 40 years ago this season CSDT presented the historic Bella Lewitsky Company?

Bella Lewitzky (1916–2004) was a modern dancer, choreographer, and teacher. Besides being an influential modern dance figure who worked to establish it as a prominent art form, she pushed for government support for the arts and was a champion of artistic freedom!
