Clara’s Trip: A Cirque and Dance Nutcracker Story @ Booth Playhouse
Dec 13 – Dec 22 all-day
Clara's Trip: A Cirque and Dance Nutcracker Story @ Booth Playhouse | Charlotte | North Carolina | United States

A contemporary twist on a holiday classic.

Clara attends a holiday party hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Flowers. At the party, she meets Beau and they dance the night away. Only one problem… Clara is a passionate dancer but not the most coordinated. She trips, falls, and is whisked off to the hospital to learn that her ankle is broken. That night, her friends and get-well gifts swirl in her dreams.

Come one, come all to the perfect holiday treat for your friends and family!

A.I.M @ Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts
Feb 5 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
A.I.M @ Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts |  |  |

The mission of A.I.M, under the artistic direction of choreographer Kyle Abraham, is to create an evocative interdisciplinary body of work. Born into hip-hop culture in the late 1970s and grounded in Abraham’s artistic upbringing in classical cello, piano, and the visual arts, the goal of the movement is to delve into identity in relation to a personal history. The work entwines a sensual and provocative vocabulary with a strong emphasis on sound, human behavior and all things visual in an effort to create an avenue for personal investigation and exposing that on stage. A.I.M is a representation of dancers from various disciplines and diverse personal backgrounds. Combined together, these individualities create movement that is manipulated and molded into something fresh and unique.

Shen Yun Performance at Belk Theater @ Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center
Feb 6 – Feb 9 all-day
Shen Yun Performance at Belk Theater @ Belk Theater at Blumenthal Performing Arts Center | Charlotte | North Carolina | United States
“It brings great hope…truly a touch of heaven.”
-Daniel Herman, former Minister of Culture of the Czech Republic

A Heavenly Gift

The culture of ancient China was divinely inspired.

Shen Yun’s works reflect this rich spiritual heritage…

Shen Yun invites you to travel back to the magical world of ancient China. Experience a lost culture through the incredible art of classical Chinese dance, and see legends come to life. Shen Yun makes this possible by pushing the boundaries of the performing arts, with a unique blend of stunning costuming, high-tech backdrops, and an orchestra like no other. Be prepared for a theatrical experience that will take your breath away!

A Heritage Once Lost

The traditional Chinese culture Shen Yun presents cannot be seen anywhere else in the world—not even in China. There, the ruling communist regime has viewed China’s rich spiritual and artistic heritage as a threat to its ideology and for decades tried to erase it.

But in 2006, a group of Chinese artists came together in New York with a vision: to revive the best of China’s cultural heritage and share it with the world. They drew courage and inspiration from their practice of Falun Dafa—a spiritual discipline based on the principles of truthfulness, compassion, and tolerance. The company’s repertoire includes important works shedding light on the plight of people like them in communist China today.

After a decade of performing around the world to sold-out audiences everywhere, Shen Yun has brought a great civilization back from the brink of extinction.

Full Houses Everywhere

Shen Yun is now the world’s premier classical Chinese dance company. Some people fly from other countries or drive hundreds of miles to see it. Others see the same performance five or six times. Why? Many say there are no words to describe it—you have to see it with your own eyes to find out.

Join us for the experience of a lifetime.
