CAROLINA CIVIC BALLET

Carolina Civic Ballet is a carefully structured ballet program  that offers a variety of classes and levels designed to accommodate every dancer's needs. Ballet is a wonderful way to inspire students' love for dance while promoting muscular strength, proper body alignment, flexibility, and lyrical musicality. Our experienced faculty believes in teaching the correct anatomical aspects of the art while introducing students to a neo-classical style.
