Click “play” and learn how CTB has grown from serving 200 children in 2000 to 4,000 children today. Hear how our children experience JOY and PASSION as they learn how to learn through a program that can change the trajectory of their lives. No child ever pays a penny for our classes.

Music and dance classes elicit in students a personal standard of excellence, using dance as the medium to teach children valuable life lessons: that energy, discipline, teamwork, commitment and trying your hardest can lead to success.  

Founded by Tracy Straus in 2000, Celebrate The Beat was initially an outreach program for the Aspen Santa Fe Ballet. In 2004, after witnessing the profound impact of her efforts, Ms. Straus decided to dance her way to independence, registering Celebrate The Beat as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

Celebrate The Beat is proud to collaborate with Associates of National Dance Institute in teaching exchanges and to share best practices in dance education. All dance programs and techniques utilized by Celebrate The Beat are inspired by the award winning National Dance Institute

 

OUR PROGRAMS

Exhilarating. Stimulating. Challenging. Engaging.

Students are joyfully challenged to develop healthy living habits, collaborative skills, cultural literacy, critical thinking, confidence, and much more.

Even the press goes crazy for Celebrate the Beat.

IN-SCHOOL & AFTER-SCHOOL

During the 2016 – 2017 school year, Celebrate The Beat will be dancing alongside over 3,500 students in grades K-8 in 28 schools located in communities throughout Colorado and Mexico. Our three to thirty week programs don’t just supplement the core school curriculum…they lead by example. Just ask any student or teacher involved. Children return to their core classes and homes energized and focused, ready to tackle any challenge dancing in their direction.
