Supporting Dance Since 1979


Le Bal de Ballet  

Magical Events Funding Outreach


We are having a “the grandest of grand” Le Bal de Ballet on June 12, 2021!  We are so excited to be joining together, “Les Caprices du Papillon” (2020) and “Adventure is out There” (2021) for a very special night!  

Denver Ballet Guild is honored to be serving the Class of 2020 and the Class of 2021 together with what we think is going to be an uplifting night of honoring dozens of amazing Colorado young adults, coupled with a party that will be well deserved for all! 

As we prepare to honor the class of 2021, we are planning a year sure to be filled with “Adventure”.  Monthly events, just to mention a few,  will include an announcement reception in September, Protocol Dinner at Shanahan’s Steak House, Bowling, Broomball, Holiday Brunch at The Brown Palace, Honoree Western Party, and a couple of fun events for parents too! The Class of 2020 will also be able to enjoy their Mother/Daughter tea that was missed this past April.

The last few months have certainly been challenging for our DBG families, and our hearts are soaring now as we move forward with plans for the year ahead. As Le Bal de Ballet chairs, we both hope to combine these outstanding seniors and college-freshmen for a night they will surely remember!

Le Bal de Ballet 2020 Honorees

Thirty-six newly honored Debutantes and 19 Young Men of Distinction took the first step in their year-long journey at the Denver Ballet Guild’s 52nd Le Bal de Ballet Announcement Reception, Sunday, Sept. 15, at Cherry Hills Country Club.

These distinguished seniors represent 13 Metro Denver schools. This is the first time they and their parents met each other for the 2020 Le Bal de Ballet, themed Les Caprices du Papillon or Whims of the Butterfly, first performed in 1889 for the Imperial Court in St. Petersburg, Russia.

The 55 honorees are accomplished in academics, sports, music, theater, leadership and philanthropy.

Honorees will enjoy a full schedule of social events throughout the year before their presentation on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Dinner and dancing at the Sheraton Denver Downtown Hotel will follow.

All proceeds from Le Bal de Ballet go toward funding the Denver Ballet Guild’s philanthropic activities.
