As the 52 dancers of the Colorado Ballet and its junior company, Colorado Ballet II, settle into their new home -- a 30,000-square-foot repurposed structure off Santa Fe Drive in Denver -- CPR arts producer Stephanie Wolf and digital videographer Irvin Coffee got an exclusive tour of the facility.

The 54-year-old ballet company purchased the 100-year-old building in January 2013 and began construction in late June 2013. Moving day was Aug. 22.

Wolf and Coffee spoke with soloist dancer Jesse Marks as well as artistic director Gil Boggs and one of the architects on the project, Todd Afflerbaugh of Denver-based Semple Brown Design.
