Visit our Junior Co & Company page:
Children's Ballet Theater offers students ages 2.5 to 18 years and adults ballet training in the beautiful traditions of Russian and European classical ballet. It is former ballerina Mary Van Dyke's greatest joy to offer children and teens an uplifting atmosphere with knowledgeable and encouraging teachers. The school offers a unique experience to train in the methods and discipline of classical ballet from Russia and Europe. Each teacher is fully trained and continually motivated to reach only the highest standards in their work, to insure each semester is filled with the joy of dance and the best in ballet. Ms. Van Dyke is also proud to have Ballet Mistress and TBT coach Nora Curran work intensively with the staff on the fine details of the Vaganova Method from the Kirov Ballet as handed down to her by her beloved mother. Beginners as well as experienced dancers are welcome to audition each September for our Children's Ballet Theater Nutcracker featuring children starting in kindergarten, as well our teens and adults of Tennessee Ballet Theater. This acclaimed production is held annually at the Germantown Performing Arts Center.
