Join the talented dancers of Atlanta Ballet 2 for a magical, moonlit performance on November 17 in Center Plaza at 6:30 p.m. The program will include new works choreographed by Atlanta Ballet company dancer Nadia, Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education faculty member Armando Luna, and former New York City Ballet principal dancer Monique Meunier, as well as a section of Atlanta Ballet 2 presents Beauty & the Beast by Bruce Wells. To ring in the holiday season, Atlanta Ballet 2 will also perform excerpts of the beloved family classic The Nutcracker, staged by Atlanta Ballet Artistic Director Emeritus Robert Barnett. Arrive at sundown for the lighting of the streets, when six city blocks of holiday lights will illuminate The Shops Buckhead Atlanta. No ticket is required for this event.

This year’s Holiday Kick-Off theme, “Dewdrop's Land of the Sweets,” pays homage to Act II of The Nutcracker ballet when Marie and the Nutcracker Prince travel to the beautiful Land of the Sweets, ruled by the Sugar Plum Fairy. In honor of Marie’s heroism, a celebration of sweets from around the world will be held at The Shops Buckhead Atlanta.
