Our Story

In 2009, after moving to Memphis, Tennessee, Collage opened the Collage Dance Conservatory to expand access to underserved communities.
To date, the Collage Dance Conservatory has trained more than 4,000 students, has the largest ballet program for boys in the city and trains more dancers of color in a classical art form than any other non-profit in the region.
Collage believes 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.

Collectively, our organization is on a mission to inspire the growth and diversity of ballet and with your support of the 12th Annual Gala Fundraiser, we can do just that!

About the Gala

Collage’s 12th Annual Gala Fundraiser 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 jazz 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!
