The benefit was first organized by former Atlanta Ballet company dancer Alessa Rogers, who now dances for Ballet of the Opéra national du Rhin in France. This year, Atlanta Ballet apprentice dancer Keith Reeves is putting the show together.
The show will benefit Lost-n-Found Youth, a nonprofit with specialized expertise in helping home lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth between the ages of 13 and 25. An estimated 950 LGBT youth are homeless in Atlanta on any given night. Lost-n-Found Youth offers a 24-hour crisis line, temporary housing, employment training and health services.
This year’s Project Love features Atlanta Ballet, Theresa Davis, Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre and a performance from Out Front Theatre.
