What time of day is she going to be commuting back and forth? A common theme in a lot of violent crimes is they occur at night, esp. late at night. I am not blaming victims as I did social work.

A lot of these crimes have time of day, people they associate with, and activities ( illegal ) they are involved with. If she is none of the above she should be fine IMO.

This is a huge decision I understand. Maybe you can contact Denver PD about your concerns?

Class and rehearsals are Tuesday through Saturday from late morning until 7 PM.

Performances get out between 9 PM - 10 PM and are held at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

And yes, of course my husband and I will come to Denver to settle her in . . . but she/we are still in the deciding phase. She also was offered a spot with Washington Ballet in DC. Their classes are held in an upper class neighborhood where she could also live.

Then neighborhoods in Denver and DC are meaningless.
Which ballet company is better for her career?
And, why isn't she asking these questions instead of her helicopter mother?
If I did this to my daughter, she would be sharpening her knife and mumbling about Rocky Mountain Oysters.

Neighborhoods are part of the equation. The question is why are you so insulting?

Just what I was going to say.

The pros and cons of which company would be better for her career isn't something I've come here to air or discuss. I was just looking for information on neighborhoods and safety since these are issues our family is also factoring into the decision. Thanks to those that assisted.

Dave if you had that little faith in the cops wouldn't you move? I believe 5% of the population are bad seeds including that D bag that helped that guy escape from jail.

Buses are notoriously slow, so a 20 min commute doesn't give her much of a radius to live in.

I was going to suggest Belmar, as the "1" Bus would take her directly to the Santa Fe Arts Dist., but the bus ride is 45 min (a trip by car would only be 10-12 minutes).

Another thought would be to live near the Englewood Light Rail Station. From there she could take the "0" Bus to the Lincoln location, and then take light rail to the Santa Fe location when they move.

davidv thanks for the idea.

I keep looking at the Cherry Creek north shopping district. She's been in NYC for the past 4 years and is used to being in a safe neighborhood with lights and people and shops everywhere. I picture her getting off of the bus in a neighborhood like Cherry Creek North, maybe near Whole Foods. I'm just not sure if there are apartments in the 1200 - 1600 mos range suitable for two girls.
