Steamboat Springs is known for skiing, a beautiful landscape and it’s western hospitality. What you may not know about us is that we are a community of life-long learners and creatives. We are fortunate to be able to continue our formal education with classes available at Colorado Mountain College or to sit in on a lecture offered by the Bud Werner Memorial Library in partnership with one of the  many non-profit organizations in town. Citizens of Steamboat Springs also have access to the Routt County Extension Office of Colorado State University offering education around agriculture, gardening, cottage industry practices and more.

Our interests are not just academic. The Steamboat Art Museum and The Depot both offer a number of classes to the public for both adults and children surrounding the visual arts. From painting to drawing to photography locals and visitors to Main Street Steamboat can participate. The Depot also is home to The Steamboat Writers group and several performing arts classes. Classes in Sewing, Knitting and Crochet are offered at Sew Steamboat weekly.

Dance has been a staple in Steamboat Springs since 1913 when Charlotte Perry and Portia Mansfield came to the valley to start what is now the oldest operating performing arts camp in the United States, Perry-Mansfield. Steamboat Springs has continued that tradition with The Steamboat Dance Theater, a cooperative organization celebrating dancers of all ages in the valley.

If dance is not your passion you can find classes in everything from Gardening to Yoga, Paddleboarding to Fly Fishing.
