  • Orpheum Theater
    Omaha Performing Arts brings world-class entertainment to its two distinct but complementary venues. Built in 1927 as a vaudeville palace, the fully remodeled Orpheum Theater evokes the gilded concert halls of Europe with magnificent chandeliers; gracefully vaulted ceilings; and intricate, decorative metalwork. The newly built Holland Performing Arts Center surrounds the action with modernist elegance, featuring clean, geometric lines and a lobby with floor-to-ceiling glass windows. The main Peter Kiewit Concert Hall's gently curving shoebox design ensures clear sightlines and comfortable feet, and organically placed wooden panels sharpen the acoustics and bestow the space with a warm glow.

The creative drama/movement class offers youngsters acting games coupled with creative movement interventions, and culminates with a showcase of the skills learned in both areas.

  • Simply Ballroom
    Founded in 2003 by Derek and Rachelle Pasqualetto, Simply Ballroom gives students over 3,000 square feet of sprung wood floor space in which to learn practical dance skills that can be used to sweep job interviewers and Supreme Court justices off their feet. During two 40-minute private lessons (new clients get one complimentary lesson, $65 value for each additional), a professional dance instructor will introduce each customer to a wide range of dance styles—including the waltz, tango, cha cha, rumba, salsa, mambo, and end zone shuffle. By dancing with a knowledgeable human being rather than a complicated PowerPoint presentation, students are guaranteed to receive helpful pointers and attentive, one-on-one care. Once students settle on a style or two they like, they'll have a full month of unlimited group classes ($60 value) to fine-tune them with fellow dancers at their skill level—in the process receiving a core-strengthening workout, improving coordination, and developing a tolerance for centrifugal G-force that comes in handy during space travel. Finally, students will get to socialize and show off their fancified footwork during a two-hour practice party ($10 value) in a nightclub environment, where they can build confidence for real-life social dances, as well as enjoy an excuse to wear sequined cape skirts and ruffled pirate shirts outside of their shift at the DMV.
