Balletto di Gala 2014 - Dancing With Our Stars

On April 12, 2014, the Colorado Ballet Auxiliary will host its annual Balletto di Gala celebration, Dancing With Our Stars. Taking place at The Ritz-Carlton, Denver, this black-tie event promises a glamorous evening of entertainment, dancing, dinner, and more! Balletto di Gala is the largest annual fundraiser for Colorado Ballet Auxiliary, a vital cultural force in the Denver arts community. Proceeds from this event will support Colorado Ballet, Colorado’s world-class professional dance company. Cocktails will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m. There will be a silent auction, a live auction, and special performances from community leaders paired with professional dancers of Colorado Ballet.

This one-night event will serve to benefit a wide range of Colorado Ballet’s artistic initiatives. Your attendance at Balletto di Gala will ultimately support the community education and outreach programming, students of the Colorado Ballet Academy, and Colorado Ballet’s professional Company.

Gala Co-Chair, Kris McMullan, said “we have been able to feature such great community leaders at the Balletto di Gala; the Auxiliary feels fortunate to have one of the premiere dance galas of the season that raises money for such a great cause.”

Colorado Ballet is thrilled for this year’s lineup. Former Denver Broncos guard, Zane Beadles, will be dancing with Morgan Buchanan. SVP of Investor Relations and Business Development for Boulder Brands, Carole Buyers, will be paired with Dmitry Trubchanov. Co-host of the Country Morning KYGO Ryno and Tracy Show, Tracey Dixon, will be dancing with Kevin Wilson. 9 News reporter Colleen Ferreria will be paired with Sean Omandam. Former Denver Broncos running back and professional broadcaster and motivational speaker, Reggie Rivers, will be dancing with Tracy Jones, and president of Paragon Homes Inc., Ed Venerable will be dancing with Maria Mosina.

We hope you will join us on Saturday, April 12, 2014, for a very special evening to celebrate and support Colorado Ballet.
