The experience of working and performing with professional ballerinas is often a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for aspiring dancers. Former Somerville NJ Gotta Dance student Hillary-Marie Michael, now director of Jersey Tap Fest, says, “From start to finish … it is an excellent way for dancers to understand both the discipline and fun involved in a professional ballet production.”

altThe Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center” was named in honor of the late Luther F. Carson in recognition of the family’s significant support of the Center and its mission. In 1994, a team of community leaders recognized the need for a performance venue. Upon the urging of these leaders, donors, elected officials and industry professionals became actively involved in developing a performing arts center for the region, encompassing western Kentucky, southern Illinois, southeast Missouri and northwest Tennessee. Because of the four rivers located in the region (Tennessee, Ohio, Cumberland, and Mississippi), and because the facility was intended to be a regional draw, it was originally named the “Four Rivers Center for the Performing Arts” (Four Rivers Center). The name was changed in January 2004 to the "Luther F. Carson Four Rivers Center", and is now referred to as the "Carson Center", and regularly draws people from the four states listed above, in addition to southern Indiana and eastern Arkansas.
