Spring Soirée

About the Spring Soirée

We hope that you will honor our organization by joining us Friday, April 8, 2022 for the Alabama Ballet Spring Soirée, a re-imagined annual fundraising event outdoor under the stars at Avondale Brewing Company with dinner, dancing, and a special performance by Alabama Ballet. This signature philanthropic occasion will not only raise vital funds for Alabama Ballet but also offers guests a unique opportunity to celebrate the Company, its extraordinary dancers, and all the generous patrons who support the Ballet. The Alabama Ballet Spring Soirée event will raise funds for the School and the Company as well as Alabama Ballet’s education and outreach programs.

The 2022 Alabama Ballet Spring Soirée will begin at 5:30 pm with cocktails under the stars followed by a performance by Alabama Ballet company dancers. Approximately 300 guests along with Artistic Director, Tracey Alvey, dancers, Alabama Ballet School parents, board members, and friends of Alabama Ballet will enjoy a gourmet dinner by Tasting TBL and an amazing celebration of our community. The beautiful decorations, dinner, and dancing are made possible by our 2022 Gala Committee Chairs, Mary Clayton Jones, Mary Pat Weiss, and Suzanne Humphries Evans.

The Corporate Chairs, Jessica Kubat & Natalie Bolling, their Corporate Committee, and friends of Alabama Ballet encourage you to be a part of this event. By investing in the arts, you are strengthening the cultural fabric of our community. The success of the Alabama Ballet Spring Soirée empowers us to carry out our mission of changing lives through dance by promoting and fostering the development of classical and contemporary ballet through high quality performances, dance education, and community outreach.
