Chattanooga Ballet is a school and a dance company in our beautiful city since 1973. Since then, their contributions to the arts have been unparalleled and it stands alongside the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, the Hunter Museum, and the Chattanooga Theatre Centre as the 4th artistic pillar of the community. As a non-profit organization, Chattanooga Ballet’s Community Engagement and Outreach Program includes special school performances of The Nutcracker at the Tivoli Theatre and dance presentations in local schools, hospitals, and retirement communities, as well as community partnerships and free public classes and performances. Additionally, the school for dance empowers countless young people each year to explore their strength and creativity. I have been proudly donating my time and talent since 2016 in order to support their vision in the community.
