Welcome to Beck Center

Beck Center for the Arts is more than a non-profit organization that combines professional theater with arts education. We create art experiences. We are committed to creating art experiences as individual as the people we serve with eclectic performances to suit many tastes, education opportunities for all ages and abilities, community outreach programs, and free art exhibitions. We believe that the arts can be transformative and strengthen our community.


Beck Center offers over 200 award-winning classes, programs, and lessons in dance, music, theater, visual arts, early childhood, outreach, and Creative Arts Therapies, serving 3,000 students each week. We invite you to discover your inner-artist at Beck Center. We have been named "Best of the West" in Dance/Theater Instruction since 2008.
