Ballet Photography: Charlotte Ballet's Innovative Works 2017


Charlotte Ballet's Innovative Works is always an eclectic mix of movement and sound and this year's offering holds true to form.

The setting of the Patricia McBride and Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux Center for Dance gives the audience a unique close-up look and sense of intimacy.

Choreographers Mark Diamond, Sasha Janes, David Ingram and dancer/choreographer Sarah Hayes Harkins all have works featured in this year's performances.
