Pirouette in Passing

This is part of a weekly series, published fresh on Thursday mornings.

Colorado Ballet dancers share their art with all of Sante Fe Drive as they practice in a glass-paned room overlooking the street; the space, however, is the first that has ever been truly theirs. In 2013, the Colorado Ballet purchased a modern, eight-studio building on the north end of the Sante Arts District—the ballet’s first official space in 54 years. The building was renovated and designed in collaboration with Semple Brown Design and opened earlier this month. Next time you’re driving by, glance up. You might just get some pointers on how to do a proper pirouette.

Still ballerina’s, looking like Music box figurines, showcase their form in the north end of the Santa Fe art district. Home to the Colorado Ballet, the largest resident dance company in the state, this modern and elegant building is complete with eight studios and ceiling-to-floor windows for community visibility. Under a dim sky in a city on the move, these dancers set a graceful pace.
