The Night of Ballet took place this weekend at the American Muscle Car Museum. Starting at 6 PM, guests gathered in the museum's front showroom room for food and drinks and speaking by the Melbourne City Ballet Theatre and the Museum's owner Mark Pieloch. After thanking the sponsors of the event, a live auction was held with the help of Sheriff Wayne Ivey. Then guests were treated to a 30-minute performance in the main museum showroom that was made up of over 70 performers of various age groups. It was a wonderful evening, with over $35k raised to benefit MCBT.
All fundraising proceeds to benefit the Melbourne City Ballet Theatre's new ballet production, Cinderella & Swan Lake premiering at the King Center for the Performing Arts in conjunction with the State Ballet Theatre of Ukraine and Satellite Symphonic Orchestra coming up in December & January 2021/2022!
