An exuberant start to the season, Fall Works is a double feature including the work of Ohad Naharin, coming to Charlotte Ballet for the first time. Ohad’s Minus 16 has an eclectic score ranging between Dean Martin, mambo, techno and traditional Israeli music. Using improvisation and his signature “Gaga” method, Ohad crafts an experience with elements of spontaneity, while breaking down the barriers between the dancers and audience. Resident Choreographer Dwight Rhoden returns to present his ballet The Groove. Set to 1980s house music, this joyful party ballet is a fitting start to a season of celebration.

Tickets to Fall Works start at $25.

Who is Charlotte Ballet?

Led by internationally acclaimed President and Artistic Director Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux, 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 25 professional dancers, who make Charlotte their home, annually present five performance series in Charlotte during a season spanning from October to April. During the summer, the dancers and artistic staff serve as Company in Residence at The Chautauqua Institution in Chautauqua, N.Y., where Bonnefoux has been artistic director since 1983.

Former New York City Ballet star Patricia McBride, serves as associate artistic director and master teacher of Charlotte Ballet Academy, which trains 700 students annually. In December 2014, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts presented Associate Artistic Director Patricia McBride with a 2014 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.

Charlotte Ballet’s repertoire performances are made possible by a transformational gift from The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, investing in the creation and acquisition of contemporary blockbuster and master works, and additional weeks of work for the Charlotte Ballet artists.
