*** CONTEST GIVEAWAY AT THE END OF THE POST***
Nashville Ballet will explore two contemporary dance styles in one performance—a ballet set to brand-new music by acclaimed singer-songwriter collective Ten Out of Tenn and another featuring an iconic Aaron Copland score—at the world premiere of Seven Deadly Sins with Appalachian Spring May 5-7, 2017, at TPAC’s Jackson Hall. Read on for more about the upcoming event!
The Ballet Ball was a huge event and I intended to make the most of the day. After my first gig as an event host, I didn’t schedule a photographer and I missed out on capturing pictures of me in a makeup look I’ve never worn before. THIS time I was prepared.
The National Ballet is presenting it’s fundraising black-tie invite-only (kinda a big deal) event of the year Ballet Ball. My understanding of the event is that the guests are presented a seated dinner before the gala performance. At the same time as the invite only seated dinner, there is a separate hall for ticket purchasing guests to mingle and have cocktails and small bites – like a cocktail hour (for the younger crowd of “movers and shakers”).
Guess who was invited to cover the event?! Me! AND I get to attend a pre-rehearsal event two days before with an interview from a dancer and an artist. Sweet! So be sure to stay connected with me on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter )
to get the first look behind the scenes.
So again, what I’m gathering is there’s a separate baller’s only seated dinner, while the young folks( AKA “movers and shakers”) mix and mingle, then we ALL gather in the hall to watch a performance of Dance, Song, and Instruments, and at some point can dance the night away. (The PR lady literally repeated use the phrase “dance the night away” to describe the evening. now its stuck in my head) Never attended an event like this, let alone a BALL. No clue what to wear to a ball. But THIS GIRL is going to have fun figuring all this out. I was built for this! Can’t be too hard – find a dress, beat my face, introduce myself and brand because ITS WHO I AM and enjoy results! Great networking opportunity and night of amazing music for sure.
Super thrilled to be invited it’s an honor to be in the same room with such reputable names and brands. But that’s what I live to do!
