The Young People's Performing Arts Theatre was formed in 1981 to enable local dancers from all over Southeast Missouri to participate in a large-scale semi-professional production. This student ballet company is dedicated to stimulating public interest in the art of classical ballet. Since its creation, hundreds of young performers have had the opportunity to work with Kimberly Gavin Anderson in the production of the Nutcracker Ballet and A Merry Christmas Show.
