Regional Dance Company of the Week: Tupelo Ballet
BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre site on the Internet, is thrilled to announce a new feature to its comprehensive regional coverage - the Featured Regional Dance Company of the Week! Much like we do with our featured Regional Theaters, each week, we will bring you a story on a regional dance company in one of our coverage cities.
This week's featured Regional Dance Company is the Tupelo Ballet in Tupelo, Mississippi!
The Tupelo Academy of Dance Arts was founded in 1976 under the direction of the present owner, Sharon Long. Sharon, a Tupelo native, is dedicated to the art of teaching dance and shares her knowledge with her students. The studio building houses three large studios with sprung floors. The TADA staff works tirelessly to offer professional training to all students and at the same time offers a nurturing environment where memories can be made.
Upcoming productions include the Tupelo Ballet’s 30th production of THE NUTCRACKER on December 1, 2012, at the THS Performing Arts Center. CINDERELLA will be presented at the Tupelo Civic Auditorium in March, 2013.
