Committed to artistic excellence and programming, Ballet Tennessee has presented a blend of classical and contemporary ballets by the artistic directors and guest choreographers since 1987. Performance, outreach, education and professional training are hallmarks of the company. The result is a unique regional ballet company made up of professional and dedicated professional-track students. 

The company has brought distinction to Chattanooga in professionally-produced full length ballets such as Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Swan Lake, The Millennium Nutcracker, Dracula, Les Sylphides, Paquita, and A Christmas Carol. In addition to the full length ballets, the company performs original classical and contemporary works by resident and guest choreographers. Performances take place annually at Memorial Auditorium, Tivoli Theater, Roland Hayes Concert Hall at UTC Fine Arts Center and other community venues.
