Can someone tell me why "ballet" is in this headline?

Um, maybe to give you an excuse for posting the article?

There was some mention of "dancers" buried somewhere in the article -- but no comments appear about the quality of the choreography. (I'd rubbish it since it has nothing to do with our sphere of interest.)

If there's ever a weekend where Jacksonville's clubs can make a fistful of cash, this is it, experts say.

Enough of the more than 100,000 guests in town will swing by a local ballet. They may not rave about it when they get home, but they'll at least check them out.
I guess they are using "ballet" as a generic term for dance, as is often the case in Continental Europe, although not usually in the context of pole dancing etc.
