Colorado Springs Dance Theatre


For 42 years CSDT has reached across generations and cultures to promote the art of dance by awarding scholarships and nurturing young, aspiring dancers through educational and performance opportunities. We partner with other artistic entities to deliver world-class dance performances in the many genres of dance to the public. In the past two years we have expanded our community outreach by working with Kids in Motion, Mixed Emotions Dance Company, and increasing free community events. We also make dance accessible to underserved families through free and reduced-cost ticket prices.


Everyone associated with CSDT has a personal dance story to share. We’ve all been impacted positively through dance, and have experienced the joy that dance brings! We want as many people — young and old, able-bodied and differently-abled — to enjoy all that dance has to offer and believe in the power of dance to build community across barriers, and share life-giving stories that can only be expressed through movement.


In addition to monetary donations, we need volunteers who are willing to give time and effort for our events. Marketing and development are top areas of need.
