About The Georgia Ballet
Founded in 1960 by Marietta native Iris Hensley, The Georgia Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to inspiring the public through professional ballet performance, unparalleled dance training and meaningful community outreach. We are continuously growing to meet the needs of the community while fulfilling our reputation as an outstanding arts organization.
The Georgia Ballet's 22-23 Season will be coming soon. The
company is Georgia's home for classical ballet and continues to grow and foster
the performing arts needs in the Metro Atlanta area.
The Georgia Ballet's diverse performances offer audiences of all ages an exceptionally high-quality professional dance experience. The company's ever-growing repertoire of classical and contemporary works demonstrates the strong artistry and skill among company members. Our performing artists are national and international dancers, and have a versatile background in a range of dance styles.
" The Georgia Ballet's high standards for both the company and its choreographic undertakings makes it a force to be reckoned with."

"The dancers’ newfound, soft port de bras and expressive use of head, upper torso and shoulders — as well as long, clean balletic lines — showed that classical ballet remains a resilient framework for endless stylistic variation."
