Since 2009, the Collage Dance Conservatory has trained more than 3,000 students.  More than 30% of these students have received some level of scholarship.

Annual cultural enrichment trips to Montreal, San Francisco and New York, to name a few, provide students with opportunities to view professional dancers in rehearsal, train alongside students in some of the nation’s top ballet schools, tour some of the world’s most prestigious college campuses and receive guidance from some of the nation’s top ballet dancers and teachers!

Our Turning Pointe outreach program, one of Memphis’ largest in-school ballet programs, ensures students in under-resourced communities have access to ballet training without the burden of fees.

We believe in the power of ballet and its undeniable ability to transform the lives of young people in any community regardless of whether their aspiration is the stage or the board room.

We are on a mission to inspire the growth and diversity of ballet and with your continued support, we can do just that!

Collage Dance (EIN 20-5888512) is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
All gifts to Collage Dance are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.

The work we do would not be possible without the support of generous donors. Thank you!
