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 for the coming season. Parents may 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.  

All Teen Dance Students have the opportunity to perform in the Collierville Ballet's Annual Nutcracker in December and our Annual Student Showcase in May. 

Students ages 13-17 with at least two years of dance training may audition in June for the Collierville Ballet Company. The Collierville Ballet Company is a local non-profit arts and humanities organization that provides educational and performance opportunities for youth in the dance arts. The Collieville Ballet produces a full-length Nutcracker each December, a spring gala concert in March and is featured in the annual CAA Student Showcase in May.
