Girl Scouts

Join the Charlotte Youth Ballet for a Special Performance

For many children, attending a Charlotte Youth Ballet (CYB) performance is an unforgettable introduction to the world of ballet: the dazzling costumes, colorful sets, enchanting music, and storybook choreography all make for a magical experience. The Nutcracker is central to many families’ holiday traditions, and continues to inspire the next generation of dancers.

The Charlotte Youth Ballet offers a unique opportunity for Charlotte-area Girl Scouts.  Many Girl Scouts attend the holiday classic The Nutcracker or our spring storybook ballet.  In addition to the performance we offer a special Girl Scout event designed just for them.   Before the Curtain is where the Girl Scouts can meet the Artistic Director, see dancers warm up for the performance, and get an up close look at costumes, pointe shoes and props.  This event is offered prior to the afternoon shows.

It is important to CYB that ballet be both affordable and accessible. Before the Curtain is priced at only $10 per troop. Girl Scouts receive discounted tickets of $14/seat to attend The Nutcracker or our spring storybook ballet.  Tickets are available through the Dale Halton Theater box office at CPCC. The CPCC Box Office is open from 10:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday. The CPCC Box Office can be reached at (704) 330-6534.

Contact for more information or to sign up your Girl Scout or troop to attend the Before the Curtain event.  Free embroidered patches have been designed especially for the Girl Scouts that attend a performance.
