Help Us Build Our New Home
We are thrilled to report that on September 16, 2013, the official groundbreaking ceremony took place for the Jessie Eccles Quinney Ballet Centre and the renovation of the Janet Quinney Lawson Capitol Theatre. The Theatre will open back up on December 1, 2013, just in time for Ballet West's The Nutcracker. Ballet West expects to move into the new Ballet Centre on October 1, 2014. In the meantime, the administrative offices and studios are at Trolley Square in downtown Salt Lake City.
The new Jessie Eccles Quinney Ballet Centre, a permanent home for Ballet West, will be the most extensive portion of the project. The new facility will be constructed immediately to the west of the existing Theatre and will overlap with the existing structure to add space for some of the aforementioned improvements. It will also create a location for Ballet West's professional and pre-professional Academy. It will be home to five new dedicated ballet studios, which will instantly quadruple the capacity for training and rehearsal.
We need your help to make our dream a reality.
