Each year, the Tupelo Ballet collaborates with the Tupelo Gumtree Arts Festival performing various genres of dance.
In an effort to integrate arts into the school curriculum, the Tupelo Ballet is to proud to provide regional students with opportunities to experience meaningful educational performances, free of charge. In addition, their teachers are provided with educational supplements covering dance terminology as well as historical and literary themes. These children, many of whom have never been in a theater, are given the opportunity to experience the excitement provided by professional artists, ornate costumes, and beautiful scenery.
In addition to our annual Nutcracker, the Tupelo Ballet Company presents a spring performance. Past years have included Cinderella, Giselle, A Midsummer Night's Dream, Don Quixote, Coppelia, and many more. The free school performance of Giselle will be performed for regional students on Friday, April 6, 2018 at 9:30 a.m.
For the past several years, dancers from Tupelo Ballet have partnered with North Mississippi Symphony Orchestra in Orchestra Moves. This program is sponsored by Carnegie Hall and features orchestra and choral students from the Tupelo Public School District.
