About the Robinson Center Music Hall

Welcome to the home of Moscow Ballet's Great Russian Nutcracker in Little Rock! For 76 years, Little Rock’s historic Robinson Center welcomed citizens and visitors to experience a variety of entertainment – concerts, sporting events, conventions, community activities, conferences and stage performances of every kind. The center closed July 1, 2014 for extensive renovations, restoration and an expansion and re-opened November 10, 2016. The historic 1939 Robinson Center’s lavish $70 million renovation has made it the crown jewel for performances, meetings and events of all types in Little Rock. A world-class concert and performing arts venue, a state-of the art meeting facility and an anchor of Little Rock’s downtown vibe.

Little Rock Ballet Partnership: Dancers' Corner School of Dance

Nutcracker wouldn’t be Nutcracker without the local Children’s cast! Dancing along side the full professional Russian cast are local Little Rock children from Dancers' Corner School of Dance. Dancers' Corner was established in July of 2010 by Mrs. Sandy Hunter Miller when her teacher, Lorene McAfee Patterson, retired and closed McAfee Ballet. Mrs. Sandy wanted to continue a ballet-based program in her mentor's footsteps. The other teachers from McAfee joined Mrs. Sandy in creating the new studio, giving the staff many years of experience working together as students, classmates and teachers. Their recreational classes focus on the classical art of ballet with tap and jazz to enhance the learning experience. They also offer ballet only & dance company classes for students who are interested in a more focused curriculum, including extra community performances.
