South Georgia Ballet invites everyone to be a part of the ballet. South Georgia Ballet is a tax-exempt public charity under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code and is qualified to receive tax-deductible bequests, devices, transfers, and gifts. Please help us continue and build upon this strong foundation of artistic excellence. Become a Friend of the Ballet, and plan to see our shows this season. Volunteer behind the scenes, become a corporate sponsor or lend us the talents. Your support will help us bring the arts to life.


The mission of South Georgia Ballet is to enrich the quality of life in southwest Georgia by expanding the cultural opportunities available to all of its citizens. A regional youth ballet company, SGB emulates the curriculum and commitment of a pre-professional training program, develops and produces original performing arts productions and reaches out to a diverse community with education and performing arts enrichment experiences. We especially strive to bring classical ballet and other dance forms to audiences of all ages and socio-economic levels.
