Past Memphis Ballet Partnership: The Dance Academy of Bartlett

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Memphis children from The Dance Academy of Bartlett. The Dance Academy of Bartlett is the premier dance education studio in the Memphis area. The studio offers instruction in Ballet, Pointe, Lyrical, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, and Tumbling. The studio has been under the ownership of Tracy Spencer Hannon since 1997. Students have performed on Carnival Cruise Lines, on college dance teams, as members of the halftime dance team during the Liberty Bowl, in numerous competitions and dance conventions and with the Moscow Ballet.  Students learn the proper techniques of the various disciplines of dance while enjoying the performing and competition aspects of dance in a loving atmosphere encouraged by the teachers, other students, and parents.
