The Charlotte Youth Ballet enjoys a rich tradition of enhancing the cultural life of the Charlotte community with the only youth-based performing ballet company in the region. For over a quarter of a century, the CYB has proudly produced professional-quality Nutcracker and storybook ballets that merges a principal cast of professional international dancersand local students of ballet.
Our productions are designed to be accessible and affordable to a diverse audience with a particular focus on families in an effort to expand the reach of this centuries old art form and to foster a lifelong appreciation for ballet.
Corporate funding sustains a variety of CYB outreach programs, including the following:
- Underwriting tickets and transportation for at-risk school children
- Scholarships for dancer participation
- Special events for Girl Scouts
- Performances at community festivals
- Offset costs (artistic, technical, administrative, etc.) of staging professional quality productions, allowing the CYB to keep ticket costs and company dancers fees to a minimum
The Charlotte Youth Ballet, a nonprofit and tax-exempt 501(c)(3) arts organization, enjoys the support and volunteer efforts of many benefactors including dancers’ families, patrons, charitable and corporate donors.
CYB is also a proud Cultural Partner of the Arts and Science Council.
Please consider becoming a Corporate Donor to CYB for the 2011-2012 Season and enjoy the annual Nutcracker production in December and our Spring production in March, both performed at the beautiful Halton Theatre in uptown Charlotte.
