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.”

O'Brien Center of the Arts, located in Petaluma CA, is one of the newest resources for local dancers to learn and expand their expertise with a skilled staff of teachers in a multi-studio facility.  The Center hosts programs which combine visual art, music and dance, with three dance studios, an art gallery, a comfortable reception area and easy parking. The current sessions offer Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Lyrical, Zumba and Ballroom Dancing for all ages, from 2 years old to adults. At O'Brien Center of the Arts students of all ages learn to express themselves creatively through the art of dance. The Center’s mission is to give students a supportive, professional, learning environment to grow and mature as a dancer while having fun. O'Brien Center focuses mainly on classical ballet and believes in encouraging fitness, body awareness, discipline, and musical/ artistic exploration through dance.

altThe Wells Fargo Center for the Arts was opened to the public in 1981, with debut performances by the Santa Rosa Symphony and featured artists such as Anne Murray and Steve Allen. It has been owned and operated by the Luther Burbank Memorial Foundation, which was established in the 1970s, for the past 30 years.

Today, the theater hosts a variety of performances, including the American Philharmonic, Gladys Knight, and the Vienna Boys Choir, as well as educational and community events. The center also hosted George Carlin's last recorded performance.
