THE PERFORMANCE CENTER
AT CULLMAN BALLET THEATRE SCHOOL
Cullman Ballet Theatre School has been a proud supporter of the arts for 49 years and has had hopes and dreams of expanding from its five studio brick building to also offering a performance space. This allows CBTS to have private shows, such as The Nutcracker, hosted, performed, and supported fully by our own local school. Cullman Ballet Theatre School has shown the surrounding communities the importance of the art of dance and now has the capability of supporting your upcoming pageants, plays, musicals, ceremonies, competitions, and more. We are now fully equipped with a stage ranging from 48 feet by 23 feet, 140 numbered, cushioned seats, and tiered, lettered rows.
At our top tiered row sits our sound booth with its own private door and counter space. Our professional lighting and sound system were installed by local Backstage Productions. Upon walking in to our state of the art Performance Center, you’d see our waiting room lined with chairs leading to our two separate hallways to enter our auditorium. Along the left hallway you can find our two public, handicap accessible restrooms, dressing room, stretching studio, and prop room. The dressing room is furnished with cubbies, lighted mirrors, and stools to get ready along with a private handicap accessible restroom. Next to our dressing room is our stretching studio that also can convert into an additional dressing room during performances, pageants, etc. At the end of our hall is our prop room and emergency exit that leads to our main studio building. Our prop room has a garage door making it convenient and efficient for trucks to back in with any additional stage props and/or decor you may want to set up. The backstage is fairly spacious with curtains to hide any performers and/or props in the wings as well as room for performers to run back and forth behind our backdrop. On stage left you will find a quick-change room that can be used as needed or additional small prop storage. The Performance Center is an impressive building that can now be rented hourly or daily!

More than anything, we cannot wait to further support our community and the arts.
