The Upstate’s resident professional ballet company

Founded in 1972, and will be celebrating their 50th season during the 2021-2022 season, Carolina Ballet Theatre transitioned to a residential professional company in 2000. The company is a 501©(3) non-profit organization that has become a significant contributor to Greenville’s vibrant arts community by exercising its mission.

CBT’s mission is to engage, entertain, and educate its audience through the dynamic medium of dance. CBT provides Greenville with resident professional and internationally acclaimed dancers from well-adored dance companies, showcasing artistry and diversity in choreography and production.

Thanks to CBT’s committed Board of Directors, volunteers, individual and corporate sponsors, the company is flourishing and able to provide professional performances, masterclasses, and quality educational programs for participants to experience the joy and magic of live dance - regardless of financial or socioeconomic barriers.
