The Charleston Ballet
The Charleston Ballet, one of the ten oldest ballet companies in the country, was founded by Andre Van Damme in 1956 and named the Official West Virginia State Ballet in 1972. For over 60 years, the civic troupe has enriched the cultural life of West Virginia by performing hundreds of traditional and original ballets.
