The beginner to advanced dance student is welcome ot our studio in East Memphis. Students and professionals perform in the highly acclaimed Children’s Ballet Theater Nutcracker annually at the Cannon Center. It is former ballerina Mary Van Dyke's greatest joy to offer children, teens and adults the very best ballet classes and training in these unique traditions. Our teachers are employed specifically for their knowledge of these styles.  It is our imperative that all instructors are kind, uplifting and always speak encouragingly in our children’s and teen dance classes as they teach the discipline of classical ballet. Memphis Youth Musical Theater offers workshops where teens and kids get coaching in acting, dance, and vocals culminating in performances such as Annie, HIgh School Musical, Matilda, Wizard of Oz and much more.
