GUILD FOR TEENS PROGRAMS
Inspire a Passion for the Arts
The Denver Ballet Guild promotes arts appreciation, education, social activities, philanthropy, and community involvement through three programs designed for teens. Guild for Teens is a great way to meet and connect with friends from more than 20 metro Denver area middle and high schools. Guild for Teens programs begin in 6th grade and continue through the senior year of high school. Students with a parent or guardian who is a member of the Denver Ballet Guild are invited to participate. Les Cygs and Les Dems are open to all interested girls, and Le Bal de Ballet is open to boys and girls by application.

LE BAL DE BALLET
Le Bal de Ballet honors outstanding high school seniors and their families. During the year-long program, Debutantes and Young Men of Distinction attend monthly social and community service events. The program culminates in the Presentation and Grand Ball in June, a highlight of the annual social scene in Denver. Le Bal de Ballet is open to seniors from high schools throughout metro Denver who are nominated and selected for their achievements in academics, athletics, arts, and leadership.
Le Bal de Ballet, the Denver Ballet Guild’s signature fundraising event and a long-standing tradition in Denver, celebrated its 50th Golden Anniversary in 2018.
