BRINGING HISTORY TO LIFE THROUGH DANCE.
JOIN TBT IN THE CELEBRATION OF MEMPHIS' RICH HERITAGE!
Tennessee Ballet Theater, directed by Erin Walter, is a Memphis based professional company consisting of adult and teenage junior company dancers who train rigorously in the Russian and French ballet styles. They come together each season to present a varied repertoire of works ranging from modern and contemporary to classical ballet.
The staff and dancers of TBT adhere to the high standards of excellence required in Russian ballet training, and contemporary training, ensuring exquisite performances! Visit balletchildren.com for more information about our ballet school and fabulous Russian training!
With several main performances each season to look forward to, TBT offers something for everyone to enjoy! Our season begins with a fundraiser performance, featuring a variety of dance vignettes accompanied by h'ordouvres, wine and a silent auction. Next comes the Children's Ballet Theater Nutcracker performances in which the professionals from TBT collaborate with the young talent of Children's Ballet Theater to bring this holiday classic to life!
Come spring time, we begin the second half of our season with a Gala performance at the Weiner Theater, focusing each season on excerpts from a different classical ballet in addition to a variety of original contemporary works. Our season finishes out with an installation style performance, danced at and inspired by a different Memphis landmark each year. From the gritty history of Earnestine and Hazel's, to the beauty of mother nature's bounty at the Botanic Gardens, each on site performance is an annual treat!
