GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The 57th season of Dance Alive National Ballet debuts this September with its Meet the Dancers events.

Meet the Dancers, Gainesville is on September 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Cade Museum for Creativity and Invention, and Meet the Dancers, Ocala is on September 16 at 6 p.m. at the NOMA Black Box at the Reilly Arts Center.

“These are such fabulous events for both our longtime supporters and those just learning about Dance Alive,” said Executive Artistic Director Kim Tuttle. “You can watch a gorgeous performance in an intimate environment. You can get your photo taken with the dancers. And all while supporting this outstanding professional ballet company.”

At Meet the Dancers, Gainesville, guests will join hosts Donna DeConna and Craig Wilburn for a dazzling evening, including a performance from the company’s brilliant dancers, a live auction, dancing, hors d’oeuvres, and more.

“I can’t wait for everyone to see what we have planned,” said event chair Donna DeConna. “Meet the Dancers, Gainesville certainly wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, The Cade Museum, Sweetwater Catering, Elio Piedra, and Unforgettable Events.”

For the second annual Meet the Dancers, Ocala, guests will enjoy a family-friendly evening with a spectacular performance, delicious food, and photo opportunities with the dancers.
