EMILIE MULLANEY grew up in Columbia. She started dancing at age four at a small local studio. She decided to pursue ballet and joined Ann Brodie’s Carolina Ballet when she was eight. She trained under the tutelage of Mimi Worrell. Emilie had the privilege of performing many lead roles including Spring Fairy in Cinderella, Snow Queen, Dew Drop and Sugar Plum in The Nutcracker and Swanhilda in Coppelia. She has attended summer intensives with Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, American Ballet Theater in NY, Cincinnati Ballet, Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre and Richmond Ballet. Upon graduating High School in 2019, she became a trainee with Cincinnati Ballet. While in Cincinnati, she had the opportunity to perform in many outreach projects and performances with the company.

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. We will present So You Think You Can Dance, Spartanburg!, March 31, 2022. Please look for our event as we post information later this summer.

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 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!
