Need a good excuse to indulge? How about a charity event—in the form of a six-course wine-paired dinner and after-party—benefiting Brent's Place, a organization providing safe housing for children with cancer and their families. On top of giving to a great cause, guests will enjoy incredible fare (duck carnitas, smoked Colorado goat chorizo and escolar, salted dulce de leche filled chocolate chili cake, and more) prepared by Denver's top chefs including Troy Guard of TAG, Alex Seidel of Fruition, and Jamey Fader of Lola.

Dance along with the onstage crew to upbeat tracks from most recent full-length, Commercial—which earned a Latin Grammy for Best Alternative Album in 2009—during the troupe’s lively stage show full of bongos, maracas, keyboards, and a steady stream of handclaps.

Demystify the tangled undergrowth of the rainforest. Millions of trees, flowers, and organisms create this fascinating labyrinthine that returns oxygen to the earth. However, the soil itself is not very fertile—the plants hold most of the nutrients: watch dancers embody the life of the rainforest in this 45-minute odyssey. Choreographed by David Taylor, this educational performance blends dance and narration to engage young ones and sheds light on the layers of the rainforest. Wed 7 p.m.
