  • Our students have placed at YAGP regionals in Denver, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, and Seattle including 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and top 12 and top 24 placements.

  • Our students have also placed at the Denver Ballet Guild Young Dancer's Scholarship Competitions including 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and top 10 finishes, including the David Parvin Young Artist Award twice.

  • Outstanding achievements outside of ballet include college scholarships to numerous universities including a full scholarship to Santa Clara University.  This past summer two LBA students and their team placed first in Inventions and Innovations for TSA at Nationals. One of those students also placed the top 10 in Biotechnology and in Digital Photography.

  • Our favorite achievement, however, is watching what wonderful, amazing, and responsible young women and men our students are becoming.
