Teaching Residencies

New Ballet holds residencies in the community providing weekly dance instruction to children either at their school, organization or the New Ballet studios. We have had an ongoing in-school residency program at Dunbar Elementary School in Orange Mound since 2008. Residencies have also been held at Gordon Science and Arts Academy, Belle Forest Community School, Lester Middle School, Carver High School, Campus Elementary School, Rhodes College, KIPP Diamond Academy, Memphis Athletic Ministries and Girls Incorporated.

Educators can apply for funding for in-school residencies through the Tennessee Arts Commission
