Charlotte Ballet’s Family Matinees

Special performances designed just for families!

Featuring fun, interactive pre-show lobby activities that relate to the performance, children are encouraged to experience and learn about the ballet in an informal theater setting. Thanks to the continued support of The Leon Levine Foundation, funding bolsters our initiative to bring more families to Charlotte Ballet performances and provides lower ticket prices for children for our Fall and Spring Works Family Matinees.


Pre-show activities begin at 1 PM, followed by the performance at 2 PM.

Ages: Appropriate for all children
