The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby 

       We all recognize the name and remember the story. The  novel, written by F. Scott Fitzgerald in 1925, has been adpated as a movie, a play and a ballet, all which tell the love story of Daisy Buchanan and millionaire Jay Gatsby. Set in The Roaring 1920's, a time of glamour, frivolous lifestyles, jazz music, sparkle, parties, and decadence, this ballet captures the romance of the time and the loss of Gatsby's one and only love, Daisy.  

      The dancing, lavish costumes, the choice of music and the choreography under the direction of Carlos Agudelo, allow the audience to delight in this passionate and stylish ballet. Costume designer Maxine Moehlenbrock and costume mistress Missy Kimbrell have created beautifully beaded and sequined costumes. Carlos pairs his incredible knowledge of music to his choreography evoking pure emotion with each move of the dancers. 

      Our sponsors for The Great Gatsby were Contec, Inc., Martial and Amy Robichaud, Robins & Morton, AC Hotels/Marriot, South Carolina Arts Commission and the Chapman Cultural Center.

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!
