CityDance is a one-week, tuition-free dance camp for 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th graders currently enrolled in Shelby County Schools. This program is an extension of our mission to provide equitable access to a professional standard of dance training.

During this intensive dance camp, students will train in West African Dance, Hip Hop, and more with instruction from among our guest master artists. In addition to a rigorous dance curriculum, the students participate in workshops in which they reflect on the meaning of community and what it means to be the change you wish to see in the world!


We will be following strict COVID-19 safety protocols during the audition process. The link to our safety protocols can be found here: New Ballet’s COVID 19 Safety Protocols. Masks must be worn at all times during the audition and in or around New Ballet’s studio. There are no exceptions to this rule, and safety protocols will be strictly enforced.

We look forward to dancing with you!

Thanks to the Tennessee Arts Commission for sponsoring this camp through Arts Education Community Learning!
