The University of Colorado Boulder Department of Theatre & Dance annually hosts High School Dance Day, a free event typically held at the Boulder campus in late October-early November in the University Theatre Building. This free community day of dance is open to high school students, their teachers, coaches, and guardians.

To get the most out of the day, students will need a stable internet connection, access to Zoom, and a safe, comfortable space to move. If you’re interested in participating or auditioning but don’t have access to those things, please email our Engagement Liaison, Ondine Geary, and we will find other accommodations.
