The Midtown Arts Center is a state-of-the-art facility designed for the creation, rehearsal, and education of dance, with a broader vision of providing the spaces necessary to increase access to the arts for the entire Eugene community.

As the hub of cultural activity in Eugene, the Midtown Arts Center rents rehearsal studios and conference spaces, hosts fine art exhibitions of local artists in the Midtown Gallery, and is home to seven of Eugene’s leading arts organizations.

We’re a Living
Arts Center

On any given day at the Midtown Arts Center, professional dancers and musicians develop and rehearse new works, students learn their first dance steps, and conversations between arts administrators plant the seed for future collaboration. The community is invited to be a part of it, enjoying the ever-changing art in the gallery or enrolling in a dance class.


With Eugene Ballet Academy’s emphasis on strong dance technique and an environment nurturing the arts, young and adult dancers are educated in a thorough study of classical ballet and dance repertoire from Creative Movement to Pre-Professional levels.


Our seven dance studios are available for rent for dance or conferences. We are also a rehearsal facility for Hult Center performances, with studio dimensions matching those of the Silva and Soreng theater stages.
