There are more than 258,000 children in Shelby County without access to cultural or arts enrichment exposure.

Students with an education rich in the arts are less likely to engage in crime, have higher GPAs, and perform better in school.

The Collage Ballet Conservatory is the fastest growing ballet program in Memphis.  In 2017, Collage trained more than 600 students through its conservatory and outreach programs.  Thanks to corporate and individual donors, more than 30% of these students were on some level of scholarship.  Collage is committed to increasing diversity in classical ballet.  Collage houses the largest ballet boys program in the city and trains more students of color in a classical art form than any other non-profit in Memphis.

“The growth I have seen in my daughter is just one year is phenomenal!! This is the best dance school in Memphis.” — Apryl L., Collage parent

This year, Collage aims to award more than $50,000 in scholarships, grow its Turning Pointe program to provide ballet training to more underserved kids, provide more cultural exposure opportunities for its students and launch a capital campaign to support long-term growth.

With your support at the 9th Annual Season Launch Gala, Collage can build upon the recent successes of its arts education programs and grow the conservatory to become a national model!
