Ballet Ball is Nashville Ballet’s most elegant annual fundraiser, bringing together over 600 of the city’s most prominent philanthropists and patrons of the arts for an elaborate black-tie affair. At $650 per ticket, the evening includes a glamorous cocktail hour, a gourmet seated dinner and an exclusive gala performance by Nashville Ballet accompanied by special guest music artists. Ball guests then take the floor and dance the night away to some great music.

For the younger crowd, the Ballet Ball Late Party offers 20- and 30-somethings a chic evening of cocktails and dessert bites to be enjoyed while the main Ball attendees partake in their seated dinner. Late Party attendees then have the unique opportunity to enjoy the special gala performance before dancing the night away with the other guests.
