Mission Statement

Charlotte Ballet’s mission is to provide artistically excellent programming to diverse audiences in its home city of Charlotte, the Southeast region, and to the varied communities, it serves while on tour across the nation. Charlotte Ballet has received critical recognition nationally for excellence in programming, education and outreach and dance training.


Charlotte Ballet is known for its strong dancers and versatile repertoire, ranging from classical ballet like the Nutcracker, to bold, contemporary works. The company of 28 professional dancers, who make Charlotte their home, annually present six performance series in Charlotte typically spanning from October to May. With an international roster of choreographers, Charlotte Ballet is focused on bringing new works to Charlotte and the rest of the world.

Former New York City Ballet dancer Patricia McBride serves as a master teacher for Charlotte Ballet Academy, which serves approximately 1,000 students annually. In 2014, Patricia McBride was presented with a Kennedy Center Honor.

Charlotte Ballet has nationally recognized educational and community programs, including the Reach Scholarship Dance Program.

In 2010, the organization built the Patricia McBride and Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux Center for Dance in uptown Charlotte. The Center For Dance houses administrative and rehearsal spaces, as well as a 200-seat theater.
