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, and the families we serve, we are creating a customized new space that will open in the fall of 2020. 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
  • Spacious locker rooms
  • Lobby and offices for our teachers and staff

We wouldn’t be able to do this without community partners like Cherry Creek, Inc., Doug and Adrienne Fahrforth, Mayo Clinic Health System, Scheels, Northern Comfort, Walmart, Madelia Optometric, Carl and Verna Schmidt Foundation, L & N Andreas Foundation, Optimal Performance Specialists, Bamco, the Smentek/Sullivan Families.
