Ballet Ball

Atlanta Ballet, the country’s oldest ballet company and the state ballet of Georgia, celebrated its 36th annual Ballet Ball in February at The St. Regis Atlanta in Buckhead. More than 500 guests attended the sold-out black-tie affair, which is the largest fundraising event for the 87-year-old organization. Proceeds from the festivities directly support the operations and initiatives of Atlanta Ballet in bringing professional dance to Atlanta and the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education. This year, under the leadership of chair Barbara Joiner, the event raised more than $500,000, one of the highest total revenues in the ball’s history. PHOTOGRAPHY BY NINH T. CHAU
