Columbia Classical Ballet is dedicated to providing South Carolina audiences with the experience of classical ballet performed by the recognized ballet stars of the day. The Ballet recruits the most talented performers from around the world and brings them to our community.

Friday, March 12 – 7:30 p.m. – (Evening performance includes a performance of “Gravity“)

Nothing can compare to America’s beloved home-grown Fairy Tale, “Oz“, with its breathtaking choreography by Simone Cuttino and this production features the world-renowned, hometown ballet star Brooklyn Mack!

The evening performance on Friday, March 12 at 7:30 p.m. begins with the one-act performance of “Oz“, followed by a short intermission and then a one-act performance of “Gravity“.
Nothing will stimulate your senses more than the haunting and contemporary choreography of Manual Jean Vignoulle in “Gravity“.
