The Mankato Ballet Company Board of Directors researched a number of options, but soon realized constructing our own space was the best way to ensure we had the ideal space for our dancers. Cherry Creek, Inc. reached out to us and a collaboration commenced.With input from our board, our staff, the families we serve, and even our young dancers, we are creating a customized new space. And we couldn’t be more thrilled. Our new location will be, 1650 Tullamore Street, near the Riverhills Mall.

What will this new space provide for our families and our dancers?

  • 9,000 square feet of space specifically designed for our dancers
  • 4 studios-2 ballet studios, 1 tap studio and a children’s studio
  • Student lounge
  • Boys’ and girls’ locker rooms
  • Lobby and offices for our teachers and staff.


Our Fundraising Goal is $370,000 and we already have a great start!

We wouldn’t be able to do this without community partners like Cherry Creek, Inc., Mayo Clinic Health System, Scheels, Northern Comfort, Walmart, and Madelia Optometric

We hope you will join us. We need your support too!

Your support is key to our success in reaching our fundraising goal.
