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.
Additionally, Columbia Classical Ballet actively supports our community through an extensive outreach program. The hallmark of this outreach program is the annual production of LifeChance: One Night for a Better Day - benefiting children and families in danger. LifeChance is an alliance of internationally renowned artists joining with local artists to perform one night of spectacular entertainment and to raise funds for a different charitable organization each year.
LifeChance has received national attention from former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton as well as state attention from former Governor David Beasley.
The Ballet's outreach program also works with community groups and stages special productions for members of our community who would otherwise be unable to attend a performance in a traditional theater setting.
