For our 2015/2016 season, Carlos Agudelo chose to choreograph and present an all time family favorite, Cinderella. This timeless fairytale of true love, Prince Charming, two hilarious Stepsisters, a scheming Stepmother and a magical Fairy Godmother captivated all ages with music by Serguei Prokofiev. The ballet ran October 16-18, 2015, at the Chapman Cultural Center. Sponsors of this ballet were the South Carolina Arts Commission, The Chapman Cultural Center, Contec, Inc., and The Susan Patricia Hodge Foundation. 

In addition, to the presentation of the ballet, The Prince and Princes Cinderella Community Project was created to engage school students to write stories and illustrate  ways to help others if they were a Prince or Princess of a village for a day. Submissions were sent in by teachers and students' creative essays/illustrations were displayed for patrons and ticket holders in the lobby. All who submitted were given free admission. A beautiful princess from Spartanburg School District 2 was chosen. Our Cinderella Company member, Charlotte Lanning, visited our winner on Friday, October 16th, 2015, in the hospital in Greenville were she was admitted. She was able to attend the ballet on Sunday. 

Please enjoy Cinderella with your family for February Family Month.

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!
