To watch a great ballet performance is to experience graceful lines and impassioned technique. It is beauty in motion that can lead you to tears, happiness, or emotions you do not often feel. The productions offered by the Atlanta Ballet are no exception. The annual Atlanta Ballet Ball is the organization’s premier fundraiser, attracting on average more than 400 attendees every year. Slated for Saturday, Feb. 20, at the St. Regis Atlanta in Buckhead, this year’s 36th annual enchanting event, “An Evening in Paris,” features live music, and live and silent auctions of luxury goods and trips. The ball will also include a performance from the entire Atlanta Ballet company of dancers. Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m. Dinner and the program will commence at 7 p.m. This year’s gala honorees are longtime patrons Charles and Ginny Brewer. Tables are $5,000 for eight seats; patron packages are $1,500 for two; and individual tickets are $500. – Kai Whipple
