Mission & Philosophy
At the heart of all that we do we are asking Who? Where? How? and What? are we serving. With this philosophy we are searching for people to introduce to and share this art form with. We are looking for places where professional in-person ballet is not currently present, both in our community and in our region. We examine and refine our delivery, training and presentation of the art form in order to make it accessible and inspiring. We ensure our motivation is putting the needs of our audiences, students and community before our own aspirations.
In our efforts we look to overcome geographical, economic and societal barriers through touring, scholarship or sponsored classes and by providing an inclusive atmosphere where every student is trained to their greatest potential. We believe a life lived with dance is a life well lived.
Chattanooga Ballet (CHA Ballet) is the only professional ballet company in Chattanooga.

In addition to the regular seasons here in Chattanooga the company proudly represents the city touring throughout the southeast region. The company is a dream caster, showing what is possible for the athlete and the artist.
