The Aspen Santa Fe Ballet is an important part of the fabric of the local culture in Aspen and we salute the community participation and creative programming the ASFB brings our town each winter
Aspen, Colorado (PRWEB) February 4, 2009
Each winter Aspen, Colorado is graced by the presence of one of the nation's most unique and talked about dance troupes, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (ASFB). The ASFB spends half the year in the deserts of Santa Fe, New Mexico and the winter months at home near the ski slopes in Aspen, Colorado.
Heading into a second decade of activity, the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet remains dedicated to inspiring a new generation of creative thinkers and artists. The Ballet is not only a nationally recognized dance company, but also serves as an educational outlet for the communities of both Aspen, Colorado and Santa Fe, New Mexico. Through classes in jazz, ballet and tap combined with open rehearsals and daily interaction with company members, the ASFB Outreach Program brings the arts off-stage and into the lives of over 250 students annually. This community activity also gave birth to the popular, award-winning Mexican folklore youth program Folklórico, offered in both locations.
