I love fashion and while I can watch clothes from every season make it down just about every runway I can appreciate when events add a twist to the show. This is what Runway for the Ballet does! In it's 6th year, this event marries fashion with dance by highlighting 2013 spring arrivals from Macy's with short performances of the theatre's most popular shows including Innovative Works. Oh--and guess who's modeling? It's NC Dance Theatre dancers, of course. Neat, huh? If you haven't been (or if you are like me and have been and can't wait to go again) treat yourself (and maybe a friend) to the gift of fashion. VIP tickets start at $60 for exclusive seating, cocktails, and swag; general admission will start at $35. There will be two shows that day; a 4pm reception with a 5pm matinee show, and an 8pm reception with a 9:15pm evening show. The evening takes place at Patricia McBride & Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux Center for Dance which is located at 701 N. Tryon Street. The event benefits NC Dance Theatre. To purchase tickets, click here.

Bzzzz: Want a $10 discount? Enter "DANCE" when purchasing your ticket for either the matinee or evening show. General admission only.

Other highlights to keep in mind:

Dion Lim with WCNC, NewsChannel 36 will be bring her fun personality to both shows as the emcee of the evening

Celebrity DJ Shogun will rock out the runway with his DJ'ing skills

Gourmet fare will be provided by Luce Restaurant

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase and some of the gifts include restaurant gift cards, yoga classes and more
