Aspen Dance Fest

If you have the opportunity to visit Aspen during
July and August, you absolutely must use the
opportunity to see many of the performances
that are part of the Aspen Dance Fest. The
Aspen Dance Fest features critically acclaimed
contemporary dance companies from around
the United States.

The Aspen Dance fest runs for five consecutive
weeks each summer. The Aspen Santa Fe
Ballet Company hosts and performs in the
Aspen Dance Fest. The company is made up
of eleven dancers who were all classically
trained. The school was founded in 1995 by
Bebe Schweppe. The company’s debut was
in 1996 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the
Performing Arts.

All performances for The Aspen Dance Fest
are held at the Aspen District Theatre, which is
located inside the Aspen Elementary School on
Maroon Creek Road. For a wonderful evening of
entertainment and culture, be sure to catch at
least one performance during the Aspen Dance
Fest – even if you have to make a special
summer trip to Aspen to do it. You may also catch
performances by the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet
Company closer to home when they go on tour
each year.
