The Great Gatsby 

April 21 & 22, 2023

Glamour, jazz music, decadent parties and frivolous lifestyles with money and champagne that flow. F. Scott Fitzgerald’s haunting story of the complex love affair of Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchannan is told with stunning choreography, glittery costumes and beautiful sets, all under the direction of Carlos Agudelo. The Great Gatsby has been told many times on stage and screen. Now see it as a ballet where the lavish lifestyles of the Roaring 20’s are brought to life through dance.

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!
