"After 20 years we decided it was the right time to open up a school," explained Zalman Raffael Co-Artistic Director and Chairman of the School of Carolina Ballet.


"We want everyone to have a fulfilling experience here that they feel nurtured, not only artistically and technically, but also as young people that it's an experience," Raffael said. "That is part of preserving ballet because not everyone is going to be a professional dancer."

Classes will be taught to all levels from ages six to adults.

The Carolina School of Ballet will begin classes in September 2018.
