Celebrate the Beat provides the highest quality in-school and after-school dance programs for all children that improves their physical health and well being, inspires them to believe in themselves, and establishes a standard of excellence that impacts all aspects of their lives.
Our programs contribute to a healthier, higher achieving student body. By experiencing and thriving in CTB programs children are learning to listen, focus and take direction, and their excitement about learning itself is ignited. CTB teaches resilience in the face of setbacks, stamina, motivation and tenacity to work hard for a final performance. The creativity and risk taking involved builds strong character and self esteem.
CTB’s in-school program provides the same advantages that peers in better resourced schools are receiving, thus leveling the playing field and creating greater opportunities for success. CTB’s “low threshold, high ceilings” philosophy creates access to quality programs for high need populations, while increasing educational equity more broadly. This in turn raises up the whole community.
Children impacted Annually
Every year we inspire over 3,500 children to see themselves in a new and positive way. Most of our students have never danced before. Our radically inclusive approach and commitment to working within the school day means that all students have the same access to our classes.

Our partner schools are spread throughout Colorado reaching from industrial neighborhoods on the Front Range to rural communities on the Western slope, and mountain towns across the Rockies. CTB also runs a program in Nyarit, Mexico.
