Ballet Arkansas was founded in 1978 as a non-profit arts organization, but it traces its roots back for decades to the Little Rock Civic Ballet. In 2009, the company formed Ballet Arkansas Professional Dance Company, a group of professional dancers from around the country. Throughout the years, Ballet Arkansas has produced the State's annual holiday production of The Nutcracker, and has developed a dynamic dance repertoire, which they perform locally as well as on tour across the state and country. Ballet Arkansas is committed to introducing, educating and demonstrating the art of dance, both classical and newly created, to communities across Arkansas. The professional company members, with their varied backgrounds, offer unique capabilities, not only in performing but also in teaching, choreographing and leading dance workshops.
