ANATTO MCMILLAN began dancing at the age of seven at the Ithaca Ballet in upstate New York. In 2015, he moved to New York City where he continued his training at Joffrey Ballet School under full scholarship. While at Joffrey, he performed roles such as Sugar Plum Cavalier in The Nutcracker, Diana and Acteon, and Esmeralda Grand Pas. He has also performed original works by Alvin Ailey and Fredrick Earl Mosley. Anatto has attended summer intensives with Ballet Academy East, The Joffrey Ballet School, and Oklahoma City Ballet, under full scholarship. He became a trainee with Cincinnati Ballet for the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 season, where he performed with the Company, and had the opportunity to dance the lead male role in George Balanchine’s, Serenade, staged by Zippora Karz. Anatto is looking forward to his second season with Ballet Spartanburg.

Ballet Spartanburg

Education. Outreach. Performance.

The joyful picture above of children from Sidewalk Hope, an inner-city ministry in Spartanburg, captures the essence and innocence of joy, hope, and the connections that are created when we dance.  Sidewalk Hope participated in the 2018 So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg! community event, a fundraiser in partnership with 10 local organizations. The picture above reflects opportunity, joy, happiness, dance and above all, who we are as an organization: education, outreach and performance. 

The happiness in dancing on stage is reflected in this precious little dancer's eyes and body.  Arms open, lights aglow, feet planted firmly on the stage, basking joyfully from a successful performance. This is the feeling we have as we anticipate returning to the stage this October with the premiere of Carlos Agudelo's, The Wizard of Oz. Ballet Spartanburg and its Board of Trustees and staff will monitor and adjust all health and safety precautions as directed by the CDC. We are ready to dance. We are ready to see our audience. We are ready.

Thank you for your continued love and support for 55 years. Onto our 56th season we go! Now follow the yellow brick road and grab your SEASON TICKETS TODAY!
