About The Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Lexington! The Otis A. Singletary Center for the Arts at the University of Kentucky first opened in 1979; it acquired its current name in 1987, in honor of Otis A. Singletary, the university’s eighth president and longtime advocate for the performing arts. The venue hosts hundreds of events each year, from student programs and community events to a variety of cultural and performing arts productions.

A part of the College of Fine Arts and essential to the UK School of Music, the Singletary Center for the Arts presents and hosts artistic, cultural and educational events for the University community, Lexington community and the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Lexington Ballet Partnership: Dancers Center for Training

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Lexington children from Dancers Center for Training. Dancers Center for Training (DCT) was founded by a group of professional dance instructors and performers that saw a need in the community for dancer training that went beyond the traditional recital and competition model. Spearheaded by Beth Craig Hall and headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky in St. Matthew's Station, DCT opened its doors in July of 2018. Based on the same model and principals as its sister company ACTORS CENTER FOR TRAINING, DCT trains at professional levels with a practical approach to the performing arts industry. DCT believes that if you train at the professional level you will help nurture self-confidence, artistry, and professionalism. The student will have skills that go beyond plies and time steps.
