The first official Collage Dance Collective class had one student, and was taught in the basement of a Methodist church. Now, just over a decade later, the Memphis-based ballet company and conservatory is teaching 250 students (a number which they anticipate will grow significantly next year) in a brand-new, state-of-the-art facility—the doors of which opened in the middle of a pandemic, no less.


Collage has a bold vision and a powerful plan to position our non-profit organization as a national leader in dance education and a beacon of inclusivity in ballet. Can we count on you this giving season, to move ONE step closer?
