Dancing Into Dreamland
Dancing into Dreamland is an annual fundraising event hosted by the Friends of Dreamland. In previous years, prior to Dreamland's current renovation the event was held at the Arkansas Governor's Mansion. 2012 marked the first year the event was held in the Dreamland Ballroom.
Dancing into Dreamland 2018
November 2, 2018 marks the 9th annual fundraiser for the Friends of Dreamland! Come out in festive attire to celebrate 100 years standing on 9th street in downtown Little Rock. Eat, drink, and dance in the beautiful Dreamland Ballroom, atop the Flag and Banner building, and be swept back in time to the days of Louie Armstrong and Ella Fitzgerald. The evening contains a Silent Auction, an exhibit of the fantastic paintings donated to FOD by the Brewer family, and a dance competition between local individuals and troops. Heavy hors d'oeuvres and a donation bar will be provided. A few tables are still available and general admission tickets start at $75, student tickets are $25 (just bring proof of enrollment when you come that night). Scroll down for ticket options!
Festivities start at 7pm and the dance competition starts at 8. This year’s emcees, Alice 107.7’s Poolboy (5th year attending) and THV11 anchor Raven Richard will guide you through a fun-filled evening. A panel of judges select a winner from the 9 competitors who are awarded a cash prize and audience members text in their favorite performers for a People’s Choice award. The dance floor is opened up at the end of the night for continued celebration.
And don’t forget to “Pave the Way” for future generation to enjoy this amazing place! Donate to our Pave the Way campaign and receive an inscribed brick that will be inlayed into the sidewalk, immortalizing your support of this 100 year old, central fixture of downtown Little Rock. Go to www.dreamlandballroom.org/pave-the-way/ to learn more. Order your brick by September 23rd, 2018 to see it, set, the night of November 2nd!
All proceeds go to creating a better and more beautiful building and educating the public about the history of the 9th street district. With your support we can preserve the relics of the past, learn from them, and create a better future for downtown Little Rock and all of Arkansas!
