Amy Hall Garner joins Carolina Ballet for our 25th Anniversary Season as our Resident Choreographer. Garner has choreographed both nationally and internationally, and you will see her work throughout our 2022-2023 Season. Her Suite 44 performs in September 2022 as part of Jerome Robbins’ The Concert. She will choreograph a world premiere on our company during Spring 2023.

Carolina Ballet’s joint venture with the North Carolina Museum of Art will once again feature new ballets by a diverse group of innovative choreographers, including Ja’ Malik, Heather Maloy and Sokvannara Sar! Tickets will be available through the NCMA Box Office.

Both entities are grateful to serve our community through this series that will enhance, enrich and elevate the lives of the people who live here.
