Ukrainian Ballerina Brings Message Of Peace

altFor the last two weeks, Moscow Ballet soloist Olga Aru has been teaching ballet master classes at studios in Gillette and Casper. She now lives in Italy, but Aru was born in Donetsk, Ukraine – a disputed part of the country that has seen intense fighting. Her international touring has brought her close to conflict, as well. She was performing in Cairo when the 2011 Egyptian Revolution erupted.

altBuilt high on a hill over-looking the city, Casper Mountain, and the scenic Platte River Valley, the Casper Events Center lends new meaning to the term “accommodating.” Each year, people attend concerts, tradeshows, conferences and banquets, or sporting events at our facility.

Located nearly equidistant between Billings, Rapid City, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha, and Boise, Casper is the ideal location for regional conventions, tradeshows, and special events. In years past, the Events Center has been proud host of a wide variety of theatrical and musical acts, ranging from big-name recording artists (such as Reba McEntire, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, BB King, Sir Elton John, and Carrie Underwood) to the highly successful Broadway In Casper series. The Events Center is also home for major sporting events including the College National Finals Rodeo, Indoor Football League Games and State High School Tournaments.
