The Cullman Ballet Company
is the pre-professional company of "Cullman Ballet Theatre School" in Cullman, Alabama.
Owner and Artistic director, Elaine Willingham, formed the company in 1995.
Auditions are held once a year for the more serious dance student that wants to prepare for a career in dance and have more performance opportunities.
The dance competition scene is not our focus but rather to further the education and love of the art of classical & contemporary dance in the Cullman city and county area.
The Cullman Ballet Company continues to participate in dance lecture demonstartions in the Cullman County
and City school district.
Our dancers have also performed with the Montgomery Ballet production of Nutcracker,
the New York Theatre touring company production of Sleeping Beauty and has won several Honorable Mentions in the Huntsville Panoply dance competitions.
Some alumni have gone on to dance with the Harid Conservatory, Alabama Ballet, Oklahoma Ballet, Corpus Christi Ballet, Indianapolis International Ballet, Atlanta Dance Connection, on Broadway and as dancers on the Royal Caribbean Productions cruise ship.
