The Tallahassee Ballet is a regional, semi-professional company featuring a combination of classical and cutting-edge ballet. For more than 42 years, The Tallahassee Ballet has provided an outstanding training ground for emerging professionals, while stimulating appreciation of the dance arts in our community through several full-scale productions each year. This season proves to be an exciting one for Tallahassee arts patrons.
Tyrone Brooks joined The Tallahassee Ballet as the Artistic Director for the 2013-2014 season. He has a wide range of professional experience including 18 years as a principal dancer at the Dance Theatre of Harlem (DTH) in New York City.
Tallahassee Ballet company events and administration are made possible by incredible efforts of community volunteers. The Tallahassee Ballet is currently looking for assistance with publicity, fundraising, poster distribution, event staffing, and performance ticket and program distribution.
The Tallahassee Ballet has built an impressive reputation of providing an excellent training ground for young dancers and emerging professionals from the Big Bend region. Our Company is composed of 50-55 dancers, ranging from ages 9-24. Dancers are selected annually through auditions from Tallahassee dance studios and area colleges. Over the years, our dancers have had the opportunity to work and study under the direction of a professional ballet master/mistress and perform with over 500 guest choreographers, artists, teachers, and musicians.
