Community Programs

Arts programs are vital in the community. They give a chance for both Charlotte Ballet and the community to engage and learn from each other.


Reach is Charlotte Ballet’s nationally recognized outreach dance scholarship program. Reach is a community outreach need based dance scholarship program which makes quality dance training accessible twice a week, September– April, to students who demonstrate a natural talent for movement and the potential to be trained in dance.
