Ballet of the Dolls and Grant Whittaker Style once again join forces for our one and only annual fundraising event! Touted by Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine as a "show not to be missed", Fashion Ball has quickly become one of the premiere fashion events in the Twin Cities. Unique in its mixture of high fashion and performance, costume and couture, Fashion Ball is a runway show like none other.
Fashion Ball is an adventurous and high entertainment performance that combines dance, music, theater, video and fashion as only our very own style expert Grant Whittaker can imagine. This production is the only fundraising event that Ballet of the Dolls holds every season.The proceeds go to ensure the future and continuing projects of this community's beloved dance theater company, Ballet of the Dolls and it's home, The Ritz Theater.
Life Is Dance. Dance Is Life. Join The Dance.
Ballet of The Dolls dance company was founded to evolve the art, accessibility and meaning of dance and storytelling on behalf of artists, audiences and the larger community. For over 28 years, Ballet of The Dolls (BOD) has been welcoming audiences and dancers alike into mindopening and heart-opening creative experiences.
Unlike repertory companies (who repeat performances), BOD is committed to creating new and unique experiences - never to be repeated again - in order to defy creative boundaries and enrich lives. With over 200 productions and 4000 performances since 1985, Artistic Director and Founder, Myron Johnson, has never held an audition; because at BOD, anyone who loves to dance gets a chance to dance – regardless of age, shape, or size.
