Some of the most exciting dance in America is coming out of Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. Founded in 1996, Aspen Santa Fe Ballet combines adventurous American athleticism with European classical and avant-garde traditions. The New York Times says that Aspen Santa Fe Ballet “raise the bar, and then they jump over it.” 

The company is at the forefront of new choreography, making commissions a priority, such as Nicolo Fonte’s Where We Left Off, which the group will perform in Kansas City. The piano score by Philip Glass will be played live on stage by pianist Han Chen, along with more exciting works that are at the cutting edge of dance. Discover why Aspen Santa Fe Ballet is known as “a dance-lover’s dance company.”
