After 22 years as a principal dancer for the Atlanta Ballet, John Welker and four of his colleagues took a leap of faith.

They left the Atlanta Ballet and founded Terminus Modern Ballet Theatre with the goal to create, educate and inspire through the human language of dance.

And inspire, they have.
