Since 1985, the Creative Arts Center of Helena has been dedicated to the development of the total student by focusing on their individual creativity, building their self-esteem through accomplishments in class, and by helping students learn that the willingness to try is success in itself.
Our classes include Creative Movement for 3-4 year-olds and Pre-Ballet for 5-6 year-olds. Older students participate in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Tap, Modern, and Musical Theater classes that are carefully graded by age and ability of each student.
Making its home at the Creative Arts Center, Premiere Dance Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing young Helena area dancers with the opportunity to expand their dance training and provide these dancers with performing experiences. These dancers are given the opportunity to experience a company setting, aiding them in making career decisions. PDC is also dedicated to providing Helena with quality dance productions, which includes its annual production of The Nutcracker. This production has been a tradition for the Helena community for 30 years and always receives rave reviews. PDC annually awards its dancers with scholarships that enable them to attend both local and nationally renowned summer dance programs.
