Elevating the cultural landscape in Aspen is the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, a contemporary ballet company now nearly two decades old. A deep commitment to curating new ballets while cultivating choreographic talent has resulted in a catalogue of adventurous repertoire. The company’s pioneering spirit arises from a dual set of home cities: Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, gracing the Southwestern plateau. A European sensibility glossed with American ebullience forges ASFB's aesthetic, as the company has come to epitomize the contemporary-classical genre. The company performs at the Aspen District Theater in the summer and winter and also operates four ballet schools year-round throughout the Roaring Fork Valley.
