2022/2023 Season


Ballet Spartanburg is your ballet organization

     2021/2022 has been a remarkable season. We were optimistically cautious as we started the season. We were not sure what to expect. The pandemic created many feelings for so many in the performing arts world and we had to trust that our audiences would return. They did. Our perennial The Nutcracker in collaboration with the Spartanburg Philharmonic can be best described as an epic event. Joyous and memorable. Our partnership will continue in 2022. Our Studio Series was mesmerizing, An Evening with Carlos Agudelo was sentimental and heartfelt and A Midsummer Night's Dream was the perfect end to the season.
    Now it is time to to join for a NEW SEASON with new partnerships, new works, a classic perennial and the magic of a glass slipper. 

     In October, join us as the strike of a clock, the loss of slipper and the magic of a fairy Godmother brings the classic tale, Cinderella to the stage. Original choreography by Artistic Carlos Agudelo and the melodious music of Sergei Prokofiev will remind us all that when kindness is shared, it will be returned. 
     The Nutcracker in collaboration with the Spartanburg Philharmonic will return in December to excited audiences as we bring to life the timeless music of Tchaikovsky conducted by Genevieve LeClair. Carlos Agudelo's vision of the story of Clara and her adventures with the Nutcracker prince will leave audiences filled with Christmas joy. This Spartanburg Christmas tradition is beloved by all and with four performances and over 1400 seats, we anticipate an incredible weekend. Don't miss the holiday excitement.
      In February, our Studio Series: The Company, will explore new music, movement, costume and design under the direction of Carlos Agudelo. The Company will choreograph and perform bold and contemporary pieces. "This is a new step for The Company to present their unique interpretations of movement through music and we are excited for the audience to see their vision of dance."
     Intertwine,. a new DanSynergy collaboration with the community will be presented in March. This season we celebrate the ethereal quality of the classics to the transformative fluidity of contemporary to the deep rooted spirit of gospel music. Carlos Agudelo's vision to bring music, community and dance as one on the stage.
     We will end our season with glamour and glitz. Carlos Agudelo has chosen The Great Gatsby to end the 2022/2023 season. This ballet is one of his favorite stories told through dance. F. Scott Fitzgerald's complex love affair of the beautiful and shallow Daisy Buchannan and the lonesome Jay Gatsby, who fills his home with lavish parties, champagne and jazz music, will be told on stage in April. Glittery costumes, beautiful sets and exciting choreography by Carlos Agudelo. Grab your best flapper dress and champagne glass and join us.

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!
