Visit our Junior Co & Company page:
Children's Ballet Theater offers students ages 2.5 to 18 years and adults training in the beautiful traditions of Russian and European classical ballet as well as musical theater, jazz, contemporary and tap. Classes are open to the public at the Racquet Club located in East Memphis. It is former ballerina Mary Van Dyke's greatest joy to offer children, teens and adults the very best training in the most unique traditions. Our teachers are employed specifically for their knowledge of these styles. It is our imperative that all instructors be kind, uplifting and always speak encouragingly to children and teens as they teach the discipline of classical ballet. Ms. Van Dyke is also proud to have Ballet Mistress and TBT coach Nora Curran work closely with the staff on the finer hand, head and arm details of the Vaganova Method of the Kirov Ballet. Beginners as well as experienced dancers are welcome to audition each September for our Children's Ballet Theater Nutcracker featuring ages starting from kindergarten as well our teens and adults of the Tennessee Ballet Theater Junior Co. and Company. This acclaimed production is held annually at the Germantown Performing Arts Center.
