The Pavillion Dance Series

June 12 @ 6:00 pm


The Pavillion, built in 1921 as a dance hall, offers an authentic space to dance, rooted in the tradition of the Gunnison Valley. Over a century old, the floor of the Pavillion, built of maple meticulously laid by hand, is calling for the Dance to return. In the years that followed 1921, The Pavillion drew dancers and musicians from many ethnic backgrounds, introducing a melting pot of native sounds from around the world. “Bands came from all over to play at this great Pavillion on a warm summer night. They would all pile in someone’s car and make the drive to Almont [from Crested Butte] over rough and unpaved roads after working a 12-hour shift. Attending one of these dances at the Pavillion was something everyone looked forward to, the highlight of the summer for many.” (The Low Down from the High Up by Polly Oberolser) A Century later, the Pavillion creates space to connect, dance, enjoy live music and live in the moment. The Pavillion Dance Series invites the north and south ends of the valley together to engage in joyful dance every Wednesday through the summer. While sharing a melting pot of traditional music from a Supergroup of over 24 of today’s professional musicians, the dance lessons build everyone’s confidence and foster a welcoming environment that encourages trial and error, and learning from each other. Ride the RTA, one block from the Almont Stop. Enjoy dinner and drinks at Three Rivers Resort before hand. Non-alcoholic beverages and snacks available in the Pavillion. No open containers of alcohol will be allowed inside the Pavillion for a family friendly atmosphere.
