Founded in 2001, New Ballet Ensemble and School (NBE) is a thriving after school dance program in the heart of Midtown Memphis, (Cooper Young). Dancers from all over the Mid-South fill our studios six days a week, training and exploring cultural forms of dance alongside a strong classical ballet curriculum. We collaborate with education partners through school residencies and invest in other active community partnerships to reach audiences of all ages where they are.
New Ballet Ensemble was awarded the National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award in 2014, recognizing the country’s best creative youth development programs for using engagement in the arts and the humanities to increase self-direction, academic achievement, graduation rates, and college enrollment.
