The Atlanta Falcons Cheerleaders will be a part of six metro Atlanta sports organizations participating in the Atlanta Ballet’s opening night of “Nutcracker” on Dec. 9 at the Fox Theatre.

The Falcons cheerleaders will be joined by the Atlanta Dream, Hawks, Silverbacks, Gwinnett Braves and former NFL players Solomon Brannan and Dewey McClain, who played for the Falcons from 1976-1980, at the ballet to sign autographs and take photos with fans.

“It’s a treat for us to bring some of the city’s greatest athletes to our turf to see Atlanta Ballet’s own superb athletes,” said Arturo Jacobus, executive director of Atlanta Ballet. “In addition to sharing a great night of ballet, it’s our way of showing appreciation and support for the fellow home teams and acknowledging the work they do on and off the field and court. Despite our perceived differences, we all share a commitment to strong community involvement and, of course, a love for the city of Atlanta. We look forward to this year being a success and making it an annual part of our Nutcracker tradition.”

Atlanta Ballet is also offering a 50 percent discount for all walk-up patrons wearing their favorite team’s jersey. Tickets start at $20 and are on sale now.

Tickets can be purchased by phone at 855-ATL-TIXX, in person at the Fox Theatre Box Office and the Atlanta Ballet Box Office, or online at For groups of ten or more, call Atlanta Ballet Group Sales at 404-873-5811 x 207.
