Perry-Mansfield is located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, 150 miles northwest of Denver. A small Rocky Mountain community of 9,000, Steamboat Springs is rich with Western charm and natural beauty. Nestled in the hills of beautiful Strawberry Park, our rustic 76-acre campus provides students a safe, nurturing environment in which to learn. Students spend their day in open-air studios naturally landscaped with grassy meadows, aspen groves and alpine ponds.
All of our cabins are centrally located and within a short walk of the dining hall and classroom/rehearsal spaces. Junior and Young Artist students reside in dormitory style cabins with a common room and bathrooms while Pre-Professional students reside in cabins housing 2-4 students and walk to nearby bathrooms and showers.
