Littleton Youth Ballet is a non-profit performing youth company committed to producing professional quality performances, creating opportunities for youth participating in LYB, and bringing dance through community outreach, festivals, senior living communities, and local public performances in the Littleton and Denver metro area.
Littleton Youth Ballet was born in 2011 out of a need to create more performing opportunites for the many talented ballet dancers in the Littleton area. Littleton Youth Ballet's sole purpose is to provide a professional performance experience to youth which could enhance future experiences, education, and careers. We would also like for our dancers to learn and understand the value of community service by bringing dance into the Littleton and Denver metro communities.
Since its inception, Littleton Youth Ballet has produced full-length performances such as The Nutcracker, The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella, and Snow White, all which are produced with full backdrops, scenery, and beautiful costumes. Littleton Youth Ballet has also performed more neo-classical and contemporary repertoire by Alison and Bobbie Jaramillo, Peter Davison, and James Wallace in a special concert. Dancers in Littleton Youth Ballet have also begun to be recognized by national ballet schools by receiving full scholarships and stipends to professional ballet schools and have been recognized in local and national competitions.
I just want to tell you how wonderful this production was! Everything, from the organization and discipline for all those little dancers was so well done. It was just amazing! The costumes and scenery were beautiful and colorful. Congratulations. I am looking forward to the next event.

Littleton Youth Ballet entertains with professional quality shows. Every Christmas season they perform The Nutcracker followed by a fairy tale ballet in the spring. All of their performances are outstanding and family friendly! They have full sets and known guest artists including dancers from the Colorado Ballet. We look forward to watching all of their performances.
