North Carolina Dance Theatre will present an evening of ballet and dance at 8 p.m. March 1 at the Arts Center of Coastal Carolina on Hilton Head Island.
The oldest professional ballet company in North Carolina, the organization has toured extensively and performed at the Joyce Theatre in New York City. They are known for their athletic dancers and have built a repertoire that ranges from full-length classical ballets to contemporary works.
Their high-energy performances challenge stereotypical ideas about ballet, with diverse styles of music, dance and costumes. The ballets that will be performed at the Arts Center have been created specifically for these dancers with this performance in mind.
"There is an inexplicable level of satisfaction that a dancer feels when creating new work," said dancer Jamie Dee. "It is in these moments that I uncover my own strength, style and understanding of movement. It instills in me a greater sense of confidence and ownership."
Tickets are $56.
