“The first word that comes to mind when I think of Charlotte Ballet is home. Charlotte Ballet for me has been a place of warmth. I come to work everyday with people I consider family. We are able to create a positive environment that really shows in our work. This atmosphere is all because of Jean-Pierre.


“I want to honor Jean-Pierre by giving him my best season. Charlotte Ballet, with the foundation he has put in place, can only go up from here. He fills the studios with amazing dancers and people who are eager to support and grow ballet in Charlotte. I know the company will always have a piece of Jean-Pierre with us on and off stage.”

“Jean-Pierre is extremely instrumental in my life as he offered me my first job after graduating from college. He has also nurtured my artistry and given me so many opportunities to work with different choreographers and perform ballets that have aided in my growth as an individual and artist.”


“I hope to continue Jean-Pierre’s legacy through my dancing by striving to grow artistically. I know the company will continue to perform physical and emotional ballets that push the boundaries of classical ballet and the interpretations of the audience.”
