Carolina Ballet is one of America’s premiere arts organizations and has garnered critical praise from national and international media; toured internationally in China and Hungary; and taken the stage for over 1,000 performances, reaching more than 1 million people. Each season, Carolina Ballet offers quality family programming, rich classical repertoire and — with the exception of New York City Ballet — creates more new works than any company in the United States.
As Durham and Raleigh continue to be recognized as two of the best cities in the country for business relocation as well as the best cities to live, it is vital that our community continue to offer professional ballet, alongside its symphony, art museums and other cultural attractions.
“The most important factor in economic development long term is the quality of life in our region. So that notion makes an investment in the arts by all of us really important.”
