From our dancers: Why audiences will be blown away by Fall Works


Fall Works explores the exciting evolution of Charlotte Ballet. Johan Inger’s Walking Mad is a look to what the future holds. George Balanchine’s Apollo, staged by legendary Balanchine dancer and Kennedy Center Honoree Patricia McBride, is a tribute to the past. Elsa Canasta, choreographed by Javier de Frutos and originally set on artistic director Hope Muir, represents our present. Find out why our dancers are excited for Fall Works and why you should be too!

Sarah Hayes Harkins | 10th Season

Fall works will be very exciting, particularly Walking Mad and Apollo. I hope Charlotte is ready for us to blow them away with the diversity of our repertoire.

James Kopecky | 3rd Season

I’m excited to perform in Fall Works. Walking Mad has been on my bucket list for awhile. Growing up seeing Hubbard Street perform it has shaped what kind of a dancer I wanted to be.

Peter Mazurowski | 2nd Season

I’m most excited about Fall Works because it’s the perfect mix of styles and dynamics. It will definitely be a diverse show, and will be an amazing start to our first season with Hope.

Josh Hall | 5th Season

I think Johan Inger’s Walking Mad will be a highlight of the season.

Michael Matthews | 2nd Season

I think we are really starting an already explosive season off with a bang with Fall Works. Balanchine’s Apollo is a piece I’ve always had an incredible reverence for.

Drew Grant | 2nd Season

I’ve always loved Balanchine’s Apollo and Johan Inger’s Walking Mad is an exciting exploration of a familiar piece of music. I think audiences will really enjoy Walking Mad.

Alessandra Ball James| 13th Season

Each piece on the program for Fall Works looks like fun to perform. Hope did a wonderful job choosing the season.

Amelia Sturt-Dilley | 3rd Season

The three works we are performing for Fall Works will really show off the diversity of the company.

Maurice Mouzon Jr. | 2nd Season

I’m excited for Fall Works because of Walking Mad. It’s really interesting and will be fun to perform.

Elizabeth Truell | 4th Season

I’m really excited for Fall Works because Walking Mad is a ballet that I’ve always wanted to perform. We will also be doing Elsa Canasta set by Hope and Apollo set by Patti.
