The Charlotte City Ballet Company is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. Part of our mission is to have a positive impact on the Charlotte-area and surrounding communities. The charity events that the dancers participate in are varied throughout the year. Some past events include performing at Plantations Estates Retirement Center, making sandwiches for the urban ministry, and making dinner for a youth crisis center (http://www.therelatives.org/).
Most recently we had the pleasure of donating dance wear to Dance Chance; a wonderful program that introduces aspiring young dancers to the world of Ballet!
The Dance Chance Program, sponsored by the Union County Youth Ballet, is a free program for students in grades K-5 from Title 1 Schools in Union County. Students are given the opportunity to explore and learn the art of classical ballet in a professional and safe environment.
