Dance in the Rockies, located in both Durango and Cortez Colorado, hosts 60+ classes a week and over 200 students taught by a faculty of 15. DITR not only expects our dancers to be committed to learning the art of dance but to exemplify good citizenship through teamwork, good sportsmanship, community service, and respect for others.

Dance in the Rockies offers an after school program for students from age 3 to adults, as well as a pre professional/competitive program for students ages 4-18.


Classes begin in September and run through May, ending with a ballet performance in April and our Spring Recital in May.


For the more serious students, Dance in the Rockies offers a competition team that travels to workshops and competitions 3 times a year. The competition team also compiles its best works and presents a showcase performance.

All forms of dance are offered to students from novice to advanced. Come join the fun!
