Ranked among America's Top 100 Ballet Companies by the Dance Data Project, Ballet Arkansas' roots can be traced back to the Little Rock Civic Ballet, founded in 1966 by Donald C. Cranford. The organization was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization in 1979 with a dream to become the region's foremost professional ballet company, and over the course of its 43 year history, Ballet Arkansas' world-class education programs and performances have touched the lives of nearly HALF A MILLION Arkansans.

Each season, Ballet Arkansas presents a vibrant repertory of the classics, celebrated works of American dance, and new works by some of the world's most visionary dance makers, reaching more than 30,000 annually. The organization's popular free concert series, education programs, and community outreach initiatives are beloved by thousands and its digital broadcasts have reached audiences in all 50 states and in 21 countries.
