Ballet Fantastique used a $24,900 Grassroots Grant from Meyer Memorial Trust to create City Center for Dance, a highly visible downtown Euguene facility used for training, rehearsal and outreach. The dance company reports that the center is busy 10-12 hours each day, providing a rehearsal space large enough to prepare for performances as it works to become the newest resident company of the Hult Center for the Performing Arts, along with desperately-needed space to open Ballet Fantastique academy classes up to children on wait lists. It also provides an ADA-accessible space where the community is invited to experience dance through free and low-cost educational events.
