Our elegant and historic building was built in 1921 and features two dance floors, a large 4,000 square foot main ballroom with high ceilings, and chandeliers. The lower-level ballroom, called the Rathskeller, offers a 2,500 plus square foot dance floor, historic 30 foot wood bar, and historic German murals. For 75 years the building was used exclusively as a German club. Since the mid-90's dancers have called this historic building home.

The Rocky Mountain Chapter of USA Dance feels that the beauty and significant historical value of the Turnverein is important to the community.

CEO and Co-Chair
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.
