For 10 years, Collage Dance Collective has worked to inspire the growth and diversity of ballet. Thanks to supporters like you, Collage houses the fastest growing ballet program in the city and the largest ballet program for boys in the region.
Despite incredible growth and success, the organization is now at a crossroads with long waiting lists for the school, overcrowded classes, inadequate facilities and a professional company too small for sustained touring.
“Collage Dance Collective is truly an artistic haven of excellence. This company is a gift to the Mid-South community and beyond.” Craig Brewer, Film Director, Producer, Screenwriter and Honorary Co-chair, Breaking Through Campaign.
Elliot Perry, Retired NBA Player, Collage Parent & Honorary Campaign Co-Chair
“As a parent I have witnessed first-hand the excellent quality of the performances and instruction at Collage. Our new home will provide a place for dancers, teachers, parents and students from across the community to experience the transformative work of dance.”
