“To dance, put your hand on your heart
and listen to the sound of your soul.”
"Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body."
- Martha Graham
"When you perform...you are out of yourself - larger
and more potent, more beautiful.
You are for minutes heroic.
This is power. This is glory..."
- Agnes DeMille
"Dancing is music made visible."

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.

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.
