ABOUT US

Welcome to the Barbara Ellis Studio of Dance.  We are located at 1595 York Rd, Colorado Springs, CO 80918. We’ve been serving dancers of all ages in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas for over 40 years.  With a solid history in providing quality instruction, we’re proud to offer classes in tap, ballet, jazz, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop and musical theater.  With beginner classes starting for dancers as young as three… all the way up to an established and thriving adult program… BESD offers a warm and friendly environment where students can thrive.  As a family owned and operated business, with Barbara herself still at the helm, the studio offers a personal touch that is unique.  Many dancers consider the studio their second home – not only because of the time they spend here, but also because of the close, caring atmosphere.   Students from BESD have gone on to become performers on the collegiate level, in the professional world of dance and on the Broadway stage.  Many are working as dance instructors themselves or choreographing for productions seen around the world. In addition to studio classes, current students also have the opportunity to attend various dance camps and workshops throughout the year and every student performs in the annual studio production staged at the Colorado Springs Pikes Peak Center.  The event is usually standing room only and admission has always been free.  Located off of Academy Blvd. on York Street (just south of Woodmen) the studio has grown and thrived over the years without advertising of any kind – except for word of mouth.  Classes are offered Monday – Saturday at very competitive rates and multi-class and multi-dancer discounts are available to families.              

At the Barbara Ellis Studio of Dance, students don’t just learn dance steps and technique, they learn how to perform and most of all… they learn a love of dance!
