Dancing with the Denver Stars 2024

About the Gala

The Dancing with the Denver Stars Gala is the premier fundraiser for CPRD. This year Gala funds will be used to support our newest pillar – Arts-in-Wellbeing. 100% of proceeds from this event will support our work in the community, including offering paid internships, and funding health, movement and well-being events not only in Denver Metro but numerous rural areas around Colorado.

For the past 5 years this has been a SOLD-OUT event! We hope you purchase your ticket or table soon and join us for what has been called “The very best, and most fun, fundraising event in Denver.”

Individual tickets are $300 per person and very limited!

Dinner committee and corporate tables of ten are available, pricing ranges from $5000 to $15,000. Please contact Hillary Harding  to find out more about sponsor benefits.

Black Orpheus at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House

Join us in our 54th season at The Ellie Caulkins Opera House! The Cleo Parker Robinson Dance Ensemble presents “Black Orpheus” encompassing the richly diverse aspects of Brazilian culture through two distinctive works.

“Divinities’ reveals the power of the Orixas, the African Yoruba deities whose spiritual influence is felt throughout Brazil. Wise and protective – or jealous and mischievous?  These gods and goddesses are as complex as the humans they watch over! 

“Orfeo Negro” follows the journey of love and passion that leads Orfeo into the depths of the Spirit World in search of his beloved Eurydice. Will he be permitted to lead her back into the light, or will he remain with her forever, united in Death?  The timeless myth told with a uniquely Brazilian perspective!

September 14 & 15 at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
