About the Center

“Staging the Amazing” is what the AT&T Performing Arts Center has done for 10 years in the Dallas Arts District, on a beautiful campus which includes the Winspear Opera House, Wyly Theatre, Strauss Square and Sammons Park.

Audiences are brought to their feet every day by the newest shows from Broadway, the best dance from all over the world brought here by TITAS/Dance Unbound, the coolest new work by Dallas-based groups through the Elevator Project, cutting-edge speakers from the #hearhere series, as well as concerts and free community events.

The Center’s five resident companies are among the city’s leading arts institutions: Anita N. Martinez Ballet Folklorico, Dallas Black Dance Theatre, The Dallas Opera, Dallas Theater Center and Texas Ballet Theater.

Thousands of students explore and more deeply experience the arts through the Center’s education program, Open Stages. Working with local service agencies, the Center provides free tickets to underserved individuals and families through Community Partners.

A nonprofit arts foundation, the Center’s mission is to provide a public gathering place that strengthens community and fosters creativity through the presentation of performing arts and arts education programs.
