The Upstate’s resident professional ballet company

The 47th year of the Carolina Ballet Theatre will feature one of the most unique seasons ever, with three performances all inspired by classic Disney stories and one incredible fundraiser. Our artistry will be on full display with collaborations from top choreographers and world-renowned guest artists. Each performance honors a part of the Upstate that we are all proud to call home.

Founded in 1972, CBT 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.
