We are fundraising to complete the interior renovation of the Classical Arts Centre.

Thanks to you, Indiana Ballet Theatre NW Inc has been part of the Northwest Indiana community since 1980, serving hundreds of NWI families and their children year after year through the art of dance. Your support and interest through the decades has led to our commitment for the Classical Arts Centre (CAC), the future hub for all arts, including Indiana Ballet Theatre. It will be a space that offers visual and performing arts and beautiful gardens in addition to the following:

  • arts education
  • rehearsal studios
  • a black box theatre
  • event space

CAC will become the heart of the community where learning and enjoying the classical arts can be enjoyed by all ages, near and far.

Located at the northern gateway to the city, the 1930s Georgian Revival building was the Nurses’ Home for the Lake County Tuberculosis Sanatorium in Crown Point. It is a three-story, 20,000 square foot National Historic landmark building. Exterior renovations, including interior clean-up and demolition were completed this year, and now we’re ready to begin interior renovations, Phase 2. The work includes the theatre, studio spaces, the museum room, the reception and more. However, we need your help to complete this stage of the project. Therefore, we have launched a fundraising campaign to help us get there. We know you care about our community and the arts and it would be great if you were a part of this amazing project.

We are asking a few of our key partners to rally their friends, family, and networks to support Indiana Ballet Theatre's vision for the Classical Arts Centre. By becoming a fundraiser, you will help create a community arts center for our youth and families. You'll help your friends feel good about doing good.

Your Investment will: Classical Arts Centre will:
  • bring the Arts to NWI
  • Preserve History
  • Educate Students of ALL Ages
  • Develop New Jobs
  • Serve as a venue for social events
  • Offer rental space to artists/educators
  • Offer classes for ALL ages
  • Create a destination for families

Getting started is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll even give you all the tools you'll need to make a difference. With your help, I know we can reach our campaign goal.
