Achieving perfection of technique and  excellence in performance 
through hard work, dedication, discipline and learning

Classical Ballet of Colorado (CBC), under the direction of Elizabeth Shipiatsky and Maria Tyukova, trains students 

in ballet technique, character dance, classical variations, repertoire, pas de deux, and proper stretching. 

The aim of CBC is to produce dancers possessing a strong, clean, classical technique with great emphasis 

on artistry, musicality, purity of line, coordination and a quality of movement that is free of mannerisms.

CBC students are technically strong and artistically advanced. Most of our experienced students have been 

accepted at such prestigious schools as the Boston Ballet, the San-Francisco Ballet, Sacramento Ballet,

Arizona Ballet, Houston Ballet, the Kirov Ballet (Washington D.C.), School of American Ballet, 

 Bolshoi Summer Intensive (New York), Bolshoi Academy (Moscow, Russia),

 Vaganova Ballet Academy (Saint Petersburg, Russia), and the American Ballet Theater.
