The Avalon Ballroom, Boulder's Social Dance Venue

Volunteer Work Parties take place at the Avalon approximately once per month on specified Saturdays and Sundays starting at 9 a.m. with lunch at Noon.

Build your own community while you build the home of Boulder's best place to dance...

Our goal is not only to build the physical infrastructure for a dance center, but also to build a community of people that will enjoy this facility and build a strong and cohesive dance community with Avalon as their base for many years to come. Our belief is that broad participation in the construction phase will give more people a sense of ownership and participation which will benefit the operation of the Avalon in the future. Come see how good it feels to make tangible contributions that thousands of people will come to appreciate.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You

To the many folks who have contributed their time and expertise over the years, or even just once, the Boulder Dance Coalition Board of Directors wish to express our deep gratitude. All clichés aside, we seriously could not have built such a special community and place to dance without you.
