Columbia City Ballet’s ‘Dracula’ provides Halloween treat for all
By EDWARD SMITH for The State (South Carolina)

After 10 productions, William Starrett’s “Dracula: Ballet With a Bite” is the coolest dance show yet to play the Koger Center and has become a Halloween tradition for Columbia audiences.

Columbia City Ballet’s high-octane corps de ballet seems to hit another gear in this dance theater spectacular.

If anyone wants to see a clip from CCB's "Dracula - Ballet with a Bite" just logon to and check out Columbia City Ballet's listing. The one clip we have from Dracula is a bit horrific but hey, its Dracula not Cinderella. The clip is from a performance two years ago and it features Prima Ballerina Mariclare Miranda with Dagoberto Nieves and Serge Lavoie.
Happy Viewing!

City Ballet's Nutcracker Hits Highs and Lows

Free Times
December 01, 2004

Sometimes the most insightful critics in an audience are under the age of 10. Such was the case at Columbia City Ballet's opening night performance of The Nutcracker, where I was entertained by the unabashed comments coming from the youngsters around me. "Oohs", "ahs", gasps and laughter erupted from excited children.

Life Imitates Art in Off the Wall


After seeing Columbia City Ballet’s Off the Wall & Onto the Stage, I couldn’t wait to get home and crack open my college philosophy book. The performance reminded me of an idea I had studied but couldn’t quite grasp at the time: Oscar Wilde’s proposition that “life imitates art far more than art imitates life.” As I watched Off the Wall, I finally understood what Wilde meant.

This production, choreographed by Executive and Artistic Director William Starrett, features male dancers David Legan and Bobby Craft en travesti (in drag) as the stepsisters, a variation Disney obviously didn't include.
