Saturday, April 1st - CYBT’s 2017 Spring Production of “Coppélia”

Each year, the Artistic Staff and company members of Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre, together with students of Coastal Dance Centre, bring a story to life through dance and provide a unique opportunity for audiences (people from the Grand Strand community and area schools) to see our lovely dancers in a live performance on a theater stage.

Coppélia has long been regarded as one of the world’s most beloved story ballets, staged across the globe since its premiere more than a century ago. Coppélia is for balletomanes of all ages.

What is special about this year’s CYBT Spring production of Coppélia?
Coastal Youth Ballet Theatre believes that a performance is a gift to the audience.
