As the co-founder of the Black Swan Society and co-chair of the development committee at N.C. Dance Theatre, Tracey Hembrick gathers together diverse professionals to socialize before ballet performances. At one dinner, NCDT artistic director Jean-Pierre Bonnefoux came to talk about one of the company’s shows. Another time, the group watched NCDT resident choreographer Dwight Rhoden rehearse for “Limitless,” an upcoming ballet running at the Knight Theater Oct. 25-27. All of these opportunities keep Hembrick, who danced ballet in her earlier years, young at heart.
