Develop Artistry with
Collierville Ballet...

Ballet goes far beyond technique. A dancer must be an artist and with that have a vast understanding of musicality, artistic sensitivity and acting ability to be able to portray the dance story to an audience. Company dancers spend a great deal of time learning repertoire choreography and new works, pantomime and timing of musical punctuation in performance pieces.  

Our dancers also learn vital industry knowledge to help pursue professional careers in the arts if they desire to do so.  In addition, our dancers are encouraged to work toward being the very best individual they can become through academic achievements, expanding their personal skill sets, and learning to present themselves in a professional manner on and off the stage.

Today's dancer must be adapt to various dance styles and be quick to learn choreography. These are essential skills required in the professional dance industry. Our Company dancers have the opportunity to learn various ballets and new works.  The Collierville Ballet offers young aspiring dancers the chance to develop a deeper understanding of the nuances and style required for individual roles. The skills a dancer obtains at Collierville Ballet can be applied to all other areas of their education and will be of tremendous benefit to them throughout their lifetime.
