emily The Company

South Georgia Ballet is a regional ballet company founded in 1998 by Alison Bundrick, Director of South Georgia Ballet Conservatory (formerly South Georgia Performing Arts). The South Georgia Ballet company is designed to provide additional training and challenging performing opportunities necessary for the serious dancer. Dancers age 9-18 audition each Spring and Fall for the upcoming year and come from a seven county area in South Georgia and North Florida. The Company season includes three shows, including The Nutcracker, Fuse (a Winter collaborative performance event) and an original ballet each Spring. Past performances have included The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Beauty and the Beast and Tinkerbelle. The Company also provides the community with a strong Outreach Education program including Step UP! dance classes in Thomas and Grady counties, school matinee performance of The Nutcracker, the Backstage Experience program and collaborates with the Thomasville Center for the Arts to present an ArtReach program.

Under the direction of Melissa June, Artistic Director and Outreach Education Director, company dancers are given professional instruction and are exposed to classical repertory. Company dancers receive further training with regional and national instructors and choreographers including Emily Loftiss, Tyrone Brooks, Suzanne Farrell, Jane Wood, Orialis Serrano, Kevin Martin, Nicolas Pacana, Pamela Robinson-Harris, Peter Swan, Fiona Fairrie, and Margaret Severin Hansen. Guest instructors and master classes enrich the company class schedule, which involves additional weekly classes and Saturday rehearsals. South Georgia Ballet made its first guest appearance in Albany Ballet Theatre’s The Nutcracker in December 1998 and continues to bring excellence in dance performances and training to our community.

South Georgia Ballet is a public charity that is exempt from federal and state income tas as an organization described in the Internal Revenue Code section 501(c)(3). Please visit our link at "Support" for more information on contributing to our organization.
