Western Arkansas Ballet realized a long time dream by moving from a “one-room schoolhouse” to 4701 Grand in October 2004. Our current 7,000 square foot facility includes 3 dance studios, men’s & women’s dressing & restrooms, ample lobby space, copy room, storage space and administrative offices.
Serving Our Community
We strive to provide quality dance education, training, and performance in a professional yet local venue. There have been numerous projects to benefit our local community over the years and some still continue today.
Our patrons provide financial support on a regular basis and without them, we wouldn't be able to do all we do.
