A Season of Safety

COVID-19 has impacted all of us. For Ballet Memphis, it has affected the way we are able to do business and bring the art of dance to our audiences. While this may be a time of challenges and uncertainty, it has presented the opportunity for us to re-imagine what art means to our community and inspired us to re-invent how we create and present dance.

Ballet Memphis is committed to the health and safety of our dancers, students, staff, and patrons, so while our work is continuing we have altered our operations and implemented policies and procedures to create a safe environment.

Pilates and Ballet Memphis School continue virtually with classes taught by our outstanding professional instructors. A limited number of private fitness classes are offered in keeping with health and safety measures.

Our professional company of dancers continue to rehearse for our season program with policies and procedures in place to ensure a safe environment.

At Ballet Memphis:

  • Everyone entering the building has their temperature taken at check-in.
  • Everyone is required to wear a mask at all times in the building, including class and rehearsals for the professional company.
  • Social distancing is observed at all times and the number of people allowed in each studio and work area is limited.
  • Dancers and artistic staff receive regular COVID-19 testing.
  • Administrative staff continues to work remotely with limited hours in the building and regular COVID-19 testing available.
