a dancer's education, Dance South encourages students to further his or her training through
performance opportunities made available throughout the year.
The Company is Dance South's Youth Dance Ensemble. This group represents Dance South as
ambassadors for the cultural and performing arts, by promoting dance within the community.
They have been invited to perform for Disney World in Orlando, Florida, Jazz on Tap Dance
Festival in Atlanta, Georgia, Dance for the Cure, Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, many local
nursing homes, the Sumner County Symphony, and fund raising events for the American Cancer
Society and Breast Cancer Awareness Group. Seeing a need to further promote the arts in our
public schools, Dance South's Company works closely with the Middle Tennessee Youth Ballet
visiting the local elementary and middle schools at Christmas and/or National Dance Week for
performances and lectures. Dance South Company has joined the Middle Tennessee Youth Ballet to
present "mini versions" of full length ballets, "Peter Pan," "Alice in Wonderland," and "Serenade."
