We feel extremely fortunate to use their space for the most important fundraising event we hold. The Turnverein is known for its prolific selection of dance events, and the Colorado Symphony is known for performing exquisite music. Both organizations share the mission of engaging and enhancing our community through the arts.

The dance floor brings joy to many participants and in my opinion; the facility is the premium location in Denver to hold events. The Denver Turnverein is a gem inside and out, that contributes to the historic character of the city and adds value to the lives of Coloradans.
