Originally from Apex, NC, Grayson began dancing at Cary Ballet Conservatory, where she trained with Rossana Machi. She continued her training at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theatre. Grayson went on to dance as a trainee and apprentice at Charlotte Ballet under Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, Patricia McBride, and Mark Diamond. While at Charlotte Ballet, she had many performance opportunities, including roles in Peter Pan, The Sleeping Beauty, The Nutcracker, and the Pas de Trois des Odalisques from Le Corsaire. She then went on to dance with Atlanta Festival Ballet, Southern Arc Dance Theater, and Ballet Evolution.

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!
