Atlanta Ballet

For one night only, Atlanta Ballet performs their Nutty Nutcracker - a bawdy, loose adaptation of the ballet produced entirely by the company's dancers between rehearsals. Appearances from pop culture abound, from mice dressed as Storm Troopers to a Lady Gaga doll. Proceeds from the performance are directed to the Dancer's Resource Fund, which assists dancers transition careers or return to school when they retire.
