Atlanta's Ballet Gold

Atlanta INtown reports that The Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta and Atlanta Ballet have partnered to create the inaugural Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta Weekend. As part of the partnership, Atlanta Ballet will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from the special Girl Scout promotion to the Girl Scout Gold Award Scholarship Fund.

During the weekend of Dec. 3-5, Girl Scouts and friends and family of Girl Scouts will receive specially discounted tickets and enjoy an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at the Atlanta Ballet’s Nutcracker during the Saturday and Sunday matinees. Atlanta Ballet will also recognize the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta 2010 Gold Award recipients at the Friday, Dec. 3, 7:30 p.m. performance.

Even more exciting - over 40 area Girl Scouts, from Brownies to Juniors and Cadettes, will be performing in Atlanta Ballet’s performance of Nutcracker! Awesome. To purchase discount tickets through the Girl Scouts of Greater Atlanta promotion for Girl Scout Weekend, go here.

On another note, I took Ballet as a child and danced in a company as a teen. It was an amazing experience. Did you take dance while growing up?
