For over a quarter of a century, the Charlotte Youth Ballet, led by Gay Porter, has proudly staged professional-quality productions of “The Nutcracker” and numerous storybook ballets. What makes us unique?
- Cast features local and international professionals paired with talented regional students of ballet.
- Productions are designed for all ages to enjoy and make wonderful outings for families, schools, scouts, faith and civic groups, seniors and patrons of the arts.
- All students of ballet from 3rd through 12th grade are invited to audition annually for admittance to the Charlotte Youth Ballet.
- Elite CYB Senior Company dancers have the rare opportunity to partner with professionals in productions and enjoy sharing their art through many community events.
We invite you to share the excitement as we seek to preserve and promote the art of ballet, empower youth, and connect youth and professional dancers in performances that bring joy to Charlotte and surrounding communities.
