Dance school relocates to Cooper-Young

Ballet On Wheels Dance School began fall dance classes on Sept. 23 at its new Cooper-Young dance studio at 1015 S. Cooper, in the former Lifelink church. The new location is near where the studio originally held classes nine years ago before moving to East Memphis.

Ballet on Wheels Dance School offers dance classes for students ages 3 and up in creative movement, all levels of ballet, modern, pointe, jazz and other dance genres.

Students can register online through the school website,, or in person during normal studio hours.

Affordable class tuition, coupled with a professional instructional staff, performance opportunities and a host of community dance events throughout the year makes Ballet On Wheels Dance School a great dance program for all ages, said artistic director Chauniece Conner. Limited tuition assistance is also available for qualified student families.

Ballet On Wheels Dance School & Company, founded in 2002, is Memphis’ only African-American, community based, non-profit, pre-professional, classical ballet school and youth dance performance company. The school name was derived from its method of mobile instruction. The school is dedicated to preserving and celebrating dance while creating innovative works for students for public performance. For enrollment information, please call our studio at 870-4348 or visit the website at
