Among the institutions devastated by the flooding in South Carolina is the home of a ballet company.
Dancers from around the world have come to Columbia to dance in the Columbia Classical Ballet Company, founded more than 20 years ago by Radenko Pavlovich.
Now the company's 32 members have nowhere to rehearse or take classes. Their building, renovated just this summer, has been completely destroyed.
During the flooding, water reached up to the ceiling of the studio. Costumes and music scores were ruined.
