The Atlanta Ballet’s beautiful history

The Atlanta Ballet kicked off the regional ballet movement eight decades ago and was born in 1929.

What started out as a mere dream for Dorothy Moses Alexander became a reality with the Dorothy Alexander Dance Group. This company would later grow into the Atlanta Civic Ballet.

The Atlanta Ballet became the first to help fund a local symphony, the Atlanta Youth Symphony, later known as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Over the years, new creative directors and principal dancers have helped elevate the ballet to excellence with the introduction of “The Nutcracker” and additional new, full-length ballets to Atlanta.
