Carolina Ballet Theatre’s current mission is to engage, entertain, and educate its audience through the dynamic medium of dance. CBT works to provide Greenville with resident professional dancers who are dedicated to creating rich educational opportunities in dance for all segments of its Upstate audience. CBT provides professional performances, masterclasses, and quality educational programs for participants to experience the joy and magic of live dance regardless of financial or socioeconomic barriers.

Carolina Ballet Theatre is COMMITTED to INCLUSION, COMMUNITY, PROGRAMMING & ARTISTRY. CBT uses the dance to shine a light on social challenges that impact our community and help unify through the arts. Founded in 1972, Carolina Ballet Theatre is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and serves as Greenville’s resident professional dance company at The Peace Center.

Thanks to CBT’s committed Guild volunteers, patrons, supporters, and individual and corporate sponsors, the company will celebrate 50 years during the 2021-2022 season.
