Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre was founded in 2017 by five principal dance artists, who struck out to create their own unique vision of dance. By bringing together the classical and contemporary dance forms and strengths of each of its principal artists, the company has become celebrated for the creation of daring and theatrical dance works.

Through performance and contemporary storytelling, the company intends to expand conventional definitions of ballet and serve as a cultural terminus for the greater arts community.

Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre is thrilled to partner with Kennesaw State University's Department of Dance, connecting two of Atlanta's premiere dance institutions. Since its founding in 2005 the Department of Dance at KSU has become Georgia's largest collegiate dance program offering Bachelor of Arts degree with concentrations in ballet and modern. Our partnership brings together the educational and professional practices of dance allowing for multiple opportunities both on the stage and in the classroom.
