Colorado Ballet Auxiliary and Colorado Ballet staged an elegant and festive evening at Denver’s historic Brown Palace Hotel to launch the holiday season in a grand way. Even though a few families were stranded elsewhere due to weather and flights, the show went on. Guests assembled in the lobby for a cocktail reception before the Rose Ceremony in the ballroom (red roses for the Plums, white roses for the Alums) with proud dads escorting daughters on stage. Then it was off to a divine dinner in either the Brown Palace Club or 5280 Suite with children’s entertainment in the Central City Room while adults lingered over dessert and coffee. The gleeful girls were eager to return to the ballroom for dancing with the finale being a father/daughter dance. Some families had a Plum as well as an Alum with young brothers handsome in their tuxedos. The Sugarplum Class of 2019 included: Charlie Marie Albanese, Stella Faith Blair, Julia Elizabeth Books, Quinn Marie Clarke, Audrey Caroline Connor, Zella Lexington Freyer, Maya Lynn Harris, Holly Christine Hartmann, Emerson Grace Johnson, Samantha Cheley Klebe, Lior Solis Korenblat, Grace Lucille Kozlowski, Cary McCormick Lu, Lillian Helen McGahee, Eleanor Glarum Perlman, Whitney Jane Schaub, Adelaide Avery Stenmark, Charlotte Wylie White, Nadia Michelle Wilkison and Lillian Hannah Zeckser. Allyson Graves is president of the Colorado Ballet Auxiliary.
