Music & Dance in Fort Collins

Music & Dance

For the widest array of classical music and dance options, visit Fort Collins between September and May. That's when the ballet, symphony, opera, chamber players, and chorale all present their seasons, and the CSU Music, Theatre and Dance department stages recitals, plays and concerts. During the summer, you can also find live music at street festivals, outdoor concert series, and at local nightclubs and smaller venues. And if you've never cut a rug in your life, there are many opportunities to learn some new steps. Several of our local dance troupes offer lessons throughout the year; check them out below for opportunities.
