Friday, April 7, 8 p.m., MadTree Brewery, Oakley

It’s billed as the hottest dance party of the year: Cincinnati Ballet presents Club B: Grace + Grit.

To be a ballet dancer, you need grace on stage and grit to survive the grueling training. Club B: Grace + Grit brings these opposing forces to life.

The event celebrates that delicate balance of elegance with strength and determination. The evening includes an open bar, dinner by the bite and dancing until midnight, as well as a performance by Cincinnati Ballet’s Second Company choreographed specifically for Club B and DANCEFIX.

Event co-chairs are board members Keke Sansalone and Cynthia Henderson, and vice chairs are Christine Lippert and Halle Quinn.

Presenting sponsor is Mercy Health Orthopedics & Sports Medicine.

Proceeds from Club B go toward onstage productions, education outreach programs and the Otto M. Budig Academy.

Tickets are $150. Guests are invited to dress in leather and lace, denim and diamonds, or their own fashion take on “Grace + Grit.”

Tickets: cballet.org or (513) 621-5282
