Ballet & Beer: Meet the Artists

A behind-the-scenes event series

We are thrilled to bring back our new and improved Ballet & Beer: Meet the Artists Series! Throughout the 2016-2017 season, Cincinnati Ballet will host six fun, up-close-and-personal events designed to give you an insider’s view of ballet!

Hosted at the Cincinnati Ballet Center in Over-the-Rhine, Ballet & Beer is your front row seat to a unique, behind-the-scenes ballet experience. Join fellow dance fans, Cincinnati young professionals and our own Cincinnati Ballet ATTITUDE members for a professional rehearsal, where choreographers, directors and dancers give you the rare glimpse into their world. After the special showing, enjoy a local craft beer, other beverages, light bites, and mix and mingle with dancers, artistic staff and fellow attendees.

Ballet & Beer: Meet the Artists events are free, but space is limited so pre-registration is required! Register via phone 513.621.5282 or online. At the event, Cincinnati young professionals under 40 will get an exclusive opportunity to purchase specially-priced tickets for the next Cincinnati Ballet performance (pending availability).

Cash bar. ID required for the bar and/or young professional ticket purchases.
