With a canopy of lights, Christmas trees, and tinsel, the 1940s White Christmas Ball will feature big band music from the Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra, the Hot Tomatoes and a new special treat of 1950s Mambo music and dancing in our new Mocambo Club with the Colorado Mambo Orchestra. Additional entertainment will include a very special appearance by The Satin Dollz, Hollywood’s 1940s tap dancing and singing performance troupe; reenactments from, “It’s a Wonderful Life” and pictures with Santa. Guests will have the opportunity to mingle and dance among classic cars, props and lights from old movie sets. The evening’s entertainment will also include swing dance demonstrations and lessons, and a dance contest.
The best part? Attendees will be celebrating this cherished era for a great cause! The 1940s Ball donates a portion of ticket sales to non-profits close to our hearts. We’re proud to have donated over $113,000 to our charities.
Guests may arrive beginning at 5 p.m. for this year’s 1940s White Christmas Ball on Saturday, Dec. 9, for free swing dance lessons with Swing Nights Denver. Music, dancing, and revelry will continue until 1 a.m. Tickets, photos, costume inspiration, and more information are available online at www.1940sball.org.
A non-profit organization which produces two annual events: The 1940s WWII Era Ball and the 1940s White Christmas Ball, the 1940s Ball aims to create community and cultural connections which cross generations, genres, and borders through celebrating the music, dance and culture of the 1940s and 1950s. The organization aims to provide quality performances and educational opportunities which will not just inspire those who already love “The Greatest Generation” but also introduce others to that era.
“When you buy a ticket to the Ball, you’re not only going to have a great night with our community learning about and celebrating the 1940s, but you’re also helping to support our WWII veteran heroes and the preservation of American history,” George noted. The 1940s Ball donates a portion of the ticket sales to such non-profits as The Colorado 10th Mountain Division Foundation, the Commemorative Air Force and the Rocky Mountain Honor Flight. The 1940s Ball has donated over $113,000 to these charities.
