Dance Ensemble

The importance of our youth, dance and community service.

The Ballet Spartanburg Ensemble was established in June 2017, by Lona Gomez, Ballet Mistress, after careful reflection of the importance of connecting community, service and the art of dance together by young dancers at Ballet Spartanburg. The Ballet Spartanburg Ensemble is comprised of those students who are in the Advanced Ballet Ladies Division and Boys II Division. The ensemble will connect to the community through performance opportunities to reflect community investment by the Center for Dance Education. The students committed to the ensemble will hone their training and passion for dance through additional rehearsals and performances throughout the community. Performances will include classical and new works and will be performed at nursing homes, hospitals, assisted living facilities, speaking engagements, festivals, and school performances alongside Ballet Spartanburg professional Company dancers.

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.
