Atlanta Ballet Nominated for Nickelodeon Parents' Picks Awards

Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education has been named a nominee for “Best Artsy Class for Teens” as part of Nickelodeon's ParentsConnect's First Annual Parents' Picks Awards.

Teens participate in four of Atlanta Ballet’s Centre for Dance Education programs. The Student Division strengthens teens’ ballet technique while offering other styles of classes to increase teens’ dance versatility. Teens who participate in the Pre-Professional Division train six days per week to develop ballet technique at a professional level, to appear on stage with the Atlanta Ballet in performances, and to present performance pieces at national festivals and competitions. The Centre’s Open Division welcomes teens sixteen years and older for various levels of ballet, flamenco, hip-hop, jazz, and modern classes. Through strong partnerships with local high schools and the Latin American Association, the Centre also provides in-school and after-school dance instruction to Atlanta teens that may not otherwise be exposed to dance.

How to Vote
You can vote for nominees online at until June 30 to help determine which nominees are "top picks" in Atlanta. On July 15, the site will publish the Parents' Picks winners and the winning venues' information will remain featured on the site for a year. All Parents' Picks businesses are nominated based on recommendations from local city editors that live and work in the cities they cover, in conjunction with ParentsConnect users' feedback. Users' votes and rankings determine which venues are selected as winners.
