John McFall Teaser / ArtsATL Luminary Beacon Award for Community Engagement

ArtsATL is presenting the inaugural ArtsATL Luminary Awards. For the Beacon Award for Community Engagement, the selection panel will honor John McFall, former artistic director of the Atlanta Ballet, who retired last year. McFall’s contributions to Atlanta’s dance community have been significant, especially for his work in founding and establishing the Atlanta Ballet’s Centre for Dance Education, which teaches 20,000 community members annually and has been crucial in shaping future generations of dancers within the city.
