Teen Class Descriptions

Collierville Arts Academy Teen Dance Classes are for ladies and gentlemen ages 13-17 and are at a variety of levels. Our dance class season begins each August and concludes with the school year in May. We also offer a summer session for dance which is a wonderful way for students to retain their skills during those slow summer months. Parents may always observe classes from our observation windows into the studio rooms.

Each class level at Collierville Arts Academy has a dress code that may be purchased from our in-studio boutique once a student is enrolled at the Arts Academy. All dance students with long hair must wear their hair pulled back from their face and in a ponytail or bun style while taking class.  

Teen-Level Dance Students perform in our Annual Student Showcase held at the Harrell Theatre in May. All Teen-Level Dancers have the option to audition for certain roles in the Collierville Ballet's production of The Nutcracker.  

Dedicated dancers between the ages 13-21 may also audition to become members of the Collierville Ballet Company. Students ages 13+ with at least two years of classical ballet training may audition for the Collierville Ballet Company. The Collierville Ballet Company is our local non-profit arts and humanities organization that provides educational and performance opportunities in the dance arts. 

Teen Beg. Ballet & Jazz   (1 hour class/1x per week)  For ages 13 - 17. Students will learn proper ballet and jazz dance technique at the barre, center and across-the-floor using combinations of steps from the beginning level of our dance syllabus.
