Atlanta Ballet Announces the Formation of Atlanta Ballet 2

On May 20, 2017 at the Centre for Dance Education's 20th Anniversary Celebration, Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvign and Dean Sharon Story announced the creation of Atlanta Ballet 2. This 14-member training ensemble will launch August 2017 and represents a bridge between the Centre for Dance Education and the professional company. These young dancers will support the Company in larger productions, but they will also present their own performances like the world premiere of Bruce Wells' Beauty & the Beast September 29-October 1, 2017 at the Infinite Energy Theater and February 10 & 11, 2018 at the Cobb Energy Centre.
