Local celebrities, Hardin Minor and Eddie Williams of OMIMEO guest star in the Charlotte Youth Ballet’s spring performance - Cinderella. Come and watch this beautifully choreographed, yet fun performance March 24 and 25 at the CPCC’s Dale Halton Theatre in Uptown. Charlotte area dancers, international guest artists, Marena Perez and Jose Rodriguez, principle dancers with the Balleteatro Nacional de Puerto Rico, and a pair of hateful stepsisters keep all eyes on the stage!

Bring your family and friends to the Charlotte Youth Ballet’s spring performance, Cinderella and see how our story ends.
