The dance company was founded in 2011 with the goal of bringing professional dance to Northwest Arkansas. 

Artistic Director Ryan Jolicoeur-Nye and guest choreographer Karen Castleman sat down with Pete Hartman to discuss the upcoming  performance. 

Tickets for the show are available through NWA Ballet Theatre's website. Listen to the full conversation in the streaming link above.

Arkansas-based composer Amos Cochran is one of the artists included in Color Field, a new exhibit up now at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.

Using abstract sounds recorded from in and around the museum paired with synthetic tones and traditional instruments, Cochran uses texture, rather than melody, to bring out listeners’ emotions for a soundtrack experience while taking in the large colorful works in the exhibit.
