ALL Access Matinees for Youth

Charlotte Youth Ballet is proud to collaborate with Allstate Insurance Company.  CYB was awarded a grant from Allstate to launch a program called ALL Access Matinees for Youth.  CYB and Allstate are dedicated to empowering youth through exposure to the arts.  This enrichment program will help send 500 Title 1 Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools’ (CMS) students to each of the Charlotte Youth Ballet’s school matinees.  The productions each year include The Nutcracker and a storybook ballet such as Cinderella.  A total of 1,500 tickets will be provided to students free of charge.  Transportation will be provided as necessary.  Details also include tying the program to literary projects at school and a paid internship for one CMS Title 1 high school student.

The very first ALL Access Matinees for Youth show will occur on March 15th where students will attend the CYB’s storybook ballet, Cinderella.  Featuring more than 100 dancers, the production is a blend of international guest artists and regional youth dancers, creating a magical performance. This lovely storybook ballet presents the Cinderella story we all know and love in a fun and exciting format.  Each class will receive a copy of a Cinderella book to read and discuss before attending the ballet.  Following the show, they will have the opportunity to get autographs from and photographs with CYB’s professional dancers.
