Learning to dance, or simply expressing yourself in creative ways, should be a magical, joyful experience. That’s why we’ve built our program differently. 

Our teachers work with each student’s physique and natural aptitude for movement to best facilitate the student’s development. Advancement through our levels is based on technical accomplishment, artistic development, emotional maturity and readiness for the challenges of the next level.


Be more fit, more flexible, more athletic, more resilient. With our personalized STOTT PILATES® fitness programs you can achieve more out of your workouts. We offer mat and equipment classes of all levels as well as Total Barre, Active for Life and Total Body Conditioning, as well as specialty clinics throughout the year.

*New clients must schedule a private evaluation appointment before registering for any equipment class.




Ballet Memphis is supported through the generosity of the entire community. Your gifts make it possible for us to bring artistry to the stage and make an impact across our community. Donations of all sizes support every aspect of the Ballet— from pointe shoes and costumes for the professional company dancers to scholarships at your Ballet Memphis School to increased programming for our burgeoning Community Dance Programs. In short, we couldn’t be more than dance without you.
