Construction work for the Milwaukee Ballet Baumgartner Center for Dance broke ground in early June in the city’s Historic Third Ward neighborhood.
The two-story, 52,000-square-foot center will replace the Ballet’s training studio and offices at 504 W. National Ave. in Walker’s Point. It will include two large rehearsal halls for the ballet’s main dance company, multiple classrooms for children and adults, and five other rehearsal studios for children.
So far, the ballet has raised $22 million of its $26 million goal for the project. The center will bear the name of the campaign’s lead donors, Donna and Donald Baumgartner.
The construction will be managed by Catalyst Construction.
