Centennial State Ballet Opens 21st Season with The Secret Garden

Centennial State Ballet (CSB), formerly Longmont Dance Theatre, will perform The Secret Garden at the Longmont Museum & Cultural Center – 400 Quail Road, on Saturday Sept. 29. The local youth ballet organization celebrates their 21st Season, entitled Coming of Age, with this first performance.

The title of the Season reflects the celebration of 21 years of presenting exceptional ballet performances to the Boulder County Community. “Turning 21 years of age in our culture means you become an adult; it’s a coming of age. It felt fitting that this was our theme for the Season,” explains Kristin Kingsley. CSB is proud to be a part of the Longmont Arts Community. The vision of Centennial State Ballet is to provide live ballet performances to the community. CSB maintains operations as a non-profit organization via local business sponsors and individual donors, ticket sales from performances, and various fundraisers throughout the year.

Centennial State Ballet (CSB) is proud to present The Secret Garden for their fall performance in 2018. The beloved story of an orphan named Mary and her journey of self-growth and compassion comes to life onstage in this exquisite ballet. Centennial State Ballet performs under the direction of Executive Artistic Director Kristin Kingsley. Accompaniment for The Secret Garden by pianist Devon Newburn. The Secret Garden features students from CSB’s associated school, Longmont Dance Theatre Academy (LDTA).
