Aspen Nightlife – Aspen Dance Fest

If you have the opportunity to visit Aspen during

July and August, you absolutely must use the

opportunity to see many of the performances

that are part of the Aspen Dance Fest. The

Aspen Dance Fest features critically acclaimed

contemporary dance companies from around

the United States.

The Aspen Dance fest runs for five consecutive

weeks each summer. The Aspen Santa Fe

Ballet Company hosts and performs in the

Aspen Dance Fest. The company is made up

of eleven dancers who were all classically

trained. The school was founded in 1995 by

Bebe Schweppe. The company’s debut was

in 1996 at the John F. Kennedy Center for the

Performing Arts.

All performances for The Aspen Dance Fest

are held at the Aspen District Theatre, which is

located inside the Aspen Elementary School on

Maroon Creek Road. For a wonderful evening of

entertainment and culture, be sure to catch at

least one performance during the Aspen Dance

Fest – even if you have to make a special

summer trip to Aspen to do it. You may also catch

performances by the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet

Company closer to home when they go on tour
