Brands We Love: Columbia City Ballet


Share on LinkedIn

Continuing our ongoing series of “Brands We Love,” No-Longer-An-Intern Ashley moves beyond a brand to a different type of Access merchant: The Columbia City Ballet in Columbia, South Carolina. Between our discount program and rewards programs, Access has relationships with tens of thousands of local merchants and organizations like CCB – and even more love stories like Ashley’s among our member base.

Going to a ballet is similar to going to the movies. You want to be taken away from the “every day” and experience a new reality.

While back home in Columbia, South Carolina, all the girls in my family went to see a traditional Christmas ballet in December. I experienced snow dust falling from the sky, a magically growing Christmas tree, and mystical creatures that come to life before your eyes in Columbia City Ballet’s production of the Nutcracker.

The ballet company’s classically trained dancers make moving on the stage seem effortless. Defying gravity, their graceful yet bold presence overtakes the stage and transforms all the characters to those you might find in a fairytale. As each new scene unwrapped, I felt as though I was turning the page in a storybook excited to see what happened next.

Columbia City Ballet works hard to offer audiences entertaining ballets that consist of well-trained and knowledgeable professional dancers. The company strives to be strong and well-rounded, as they perform many classical ballets as well as original, full-length productions such as Dracula, Beauty & the Beast, and Don Juan.

Access partners with artistic and cultural companies like Columbia City Ballet, to offer discounts to those who are interested in art and entertainment. This works to the advantage of local art buffs like me. Access is helping to expose smaller, local artistic companies while also connecting them with the people who already love art, allowing anyone to see our favorite artistic entertainment at an affordable price.

As an employee of Access, I am excited to have Columbia City Ballet as one of our merchants passing on savings. So put on your Sunday best, and enjoy the show!
