18209134 10155247769544643 1501122924933275715 oThe Topeka Performing Arts Center is the exclusive performance venue for Ballet Midwest. This beautiful facility boasts a full-size stage setup that is unique in Topeka, providing a professional experience for our dancers, many of whom go on to dance professionally and benefit from this experience. With multiple dressing rooms and a dance warm-up room complete with sprung floors for dancer safety, there is no better facility in town to stage our productions that can involve more than 200 people. The auditorium is set up to provide guests with a wonderful experience.

TPAC provides wonderful arts programs free of charge to area schools. With school funding cuts, arts education has been greatly reduced in many schools. Through TPAC's Sheffel Theatre Clinic and Schooltime Theatre productions, many area students get to experience the arts. Ballet Midwest is proud to show our support of local schools by staging a full0-length performance of our Nutcracker ballet free of charge for area schools. We hope to continue sharing the art of ballet with children who may otherwise never experience for many years to come!

The Topeka Performing Arts Center building is owned by the city. Funding to TPAC has been cut over the years, with another proposal to cut the budget yet again in 2019. Please join us in showing your support! Follow TPAC or Ballet Midwest on Facebook, become a member of TPAC, or contact the city council to show your support and desire to have an affordable, accessible, professional quality performance venue in Topeka.
