Since its founding in 1986, Nashville Ballet has become the largest professional ballet company in Tennessee. Nashville Ballet presents a varied repertoire of classical ballet and boundary-pushing contemporary works by world-renowned choreographers, as well as original ballets by Artistic Director, Nick Mullikin, and Resident Choreographer Mollie Sansone.

Nashville Ballet owns its own building, the Martin Center for Nashville Ballet, a customized 44,000-square-foot facility that serves as a home for our professional dancers, school students, and administrative offices. Though some performances are held at the Martin Center for Nashville Ballet, most are held at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center (TPAC) in downtown Nashville.
