In recognition of Women’s History Month, we are thrilled to highlight some of the incredible ladies behind-the-scenes at Atlanta Ballet for our March event. From creating the stunning costumes that dazzle onstage and, quite literally, keeping our dancers on their toes, to managing the logistics related to dancers and visiting artists, and calling the cues backstage, this talented group of women play a huge part in bringing our productions to life. 

We invite you to enjoy this unique opportunity to hear from these normally out-of-the-spotlight professionals as they share stories and insights about their roles and experiences behind the curtain.
