This exhibit explores the history and impact of the Denver Civic Ballet, Denver's first semi-professional ballet company, and its support organization, the Denver Civic Ballet Guild. The company hosted world-renowned artistic directors and guest artists from the American Ballet Theatre and other international companies, bringing the sophistication of professional ballet to Denver for the first time. Though the company folded in 1979 after 21 years of performances, it was a launching pad for dance notables who have had a lasting impact on dance, and are profiled in the exhibit. The guild continues today as the Denver Ballet Guild.
