Collage’s Annual Gala is one of the city’s premier annual celebrations. Now in its 12th year, this is an enriching affair with performances by Collage’s world-class professional company and students from the Collage Dance Conservatory. Live music experiences, delicious cuisine, thirst-quenching cocktails, a dance party and fully experiential VIP event for all ticketed guests make this year’s gala one not-to-miss! The gala also serves as your chance to experience a sneak peek of repertoire for the 13th performance season of our international touring company, Collage Dance Collective!
Collage is excited to announce that Jasmine Guy, accomplished actress, director and ballet dancer is our special guest for this year’s gala!
Well known for the iconic role of Whitley Gilbert on the 1990s hit television series A Different World, Ms. Guy can be seen in countless roles from Eddie Murphy’s Harlem Nights to Harlem, a new comedy series on Amazon Prime.
Our 12th Annual Gala Fundraiser benefits the Collage Dance Conservatory and we could think of no better way to demonstrate the power of your contributions than to invite you to hear from such an accomplished champion for the arts. Ms. Guy’s illustrious career also began with ballet training followed by a professional career with the Alvin Ailey Repertory Company.
Ms. Guy is proof of what’s possible for our budding ballet dancers. She’s also confirmation that you should get your tickets now!!
The Collage Dance Conservatory trains more kids of color in a classical art form than any other non-profit in Memphis or the Mid-South.
Since its founding in 2009, the Conservatory has trained more 5,000 students, regardless of their ability to pay. We boast the largest ballet program for boys in the city and subsidized tuition for more than 50% of our students.
By attending our 12th Annual Gala Fundraiser, you’re actively supporting the expansion of the Conservatory’s programming, scholarships, training and impact.
Collage Dance would also like to extend an invitation to elevate your commitment as a 2022 Sponsor beginning at just $3,500!
