As the nation’s oldest continuously operating ballet company and Atlanta’s leading dance institution, ATLANTA BALLET makes a unique and much-needed artistic contribution to our city and state. Founded in 1929, the mission of Atlanta Ballet is to enrich the human spirit through dance; inspire through performance; and empower through dance education while building on the rich history of dance. Atlanta Ballet's eclectic repertoire spans ballet history, highlighted by beloved classics and inventive originals.
In 1996, Atlanta Ballet opened the Centre for Dance Education and is dedicated to nurturing young dancers while providing an outlet for adults to express their creativity. The Centre serves over 150,000 people in metro Atlanta each year. Enrollment at the Centre has grown from 268 students in 1996 to nearly 10,000 students today, and the Centre is currently the only dance school in Georgia accredited by the National Association of Schools of Dance.
Atlanta Ballet's roots remain firmly grounded in the Atlanta community and continue to play a vital role in the city's cultural growth and revitalization. By providing quality dance performances and education programs, Atlanta Ballet serves Georgia and the region, enriching and inspiring the lives of residents and visitors alike.
