Aspen Santa Fe Ballet shares its bold vision to the world, with top choreographers, a distinctive and groundbreaking repertoire, and virtuoso dancers, fostering a jewel of a dance company that’s centered in the American West. 

That pioneering spirit comes from its dual set of home cities: Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, situated atop the Southwestern plateau.

This two-decade-old contemporary dance company is shaping the cultural landscape of those two cities, and the dance field at large.
