A LETTER FROM OUR ARTISTIC AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS

As a community-driven organization, the health and safety of our audience, dancers, students and staff remain our top priority, which has led to the difficult decision to revise our 2020/2021 Season. Unfortunately, we will not be able to celebrate the company’s 50 amazing years as we had originally planned, and we have canceled Nutcracker for the first time since 1992. Yet we remain resilient and have created a modified season that will open in December with the glorious production Sleeping Beauty: A Fairy-Tailored Classic.

Even during an abbreviated season, we are committed to employing our dancers and ask you to consider donating the value of your tickets for any canceled performances to The Resilience Fund. We are so grateful for the support we have received throughout this crisis as we become even more reliant on subscribers, donors, ticket holders and all lovers of ballet!

Our thoughts are with you and your family during this difficult time. We are available any time should you need us, and we will continue to celebrate dance through our newsletter Keeping House and our social media channels until we see each other again at the theater!

Sincerely,

KEEPING OUR PATRONS SAFE IN THE THEATER

Charlotte Ballet is committed to the health and safety of our dancers, students, staff, board members, volunteers, patrons and guests. The following safety protocols have been established to ensure a safe return to theaters: 

  • Revised seating that adheres to proper social-distancing guidelines 
  • Enhanced cleaning procedures and protocols 
  • Mask requirement for all staff and patrons in theater setting 
  • Contactless mobile ticketing 
  • Digital playbills
