To commemorate our 11th Season and honor our commitment to making ballet more accessible, Collage has launched a groundbreaking digital membership. ONE Members enjoy dynamic full length performances like world premieres and short films, exclusive digital content like intimate company artist spotlights and behind-the-scenes footage, deep discounts, exclusive invitations to Collage experiences and so much more.


Make Dreams Come True Collage is building a new state-of-the-art home, the largest facility and community campus of its kind in the region. It will break barriers and change lives. Opening in late 2020, it will stand as a beacon of hope for how a ballet company, and a community, can embrace all people while celebrating people of color. Will you join us? Watch Video
