TAPA performs two story ballets a year.  These full scale productions encompass all genres of dance we teach in a beautiful and cohesive story told through dance.

Our productions offer TAPA students (and other members of the dance community) an opportunity to share the gift of dance with our community and help to fund our Bella Luce Scholarship Program.

Taglioni Academy of Performing Arts presents the 2nd annual production of Another Christmas Carol: Clara’s Journey. This original ballet weaves two classic Christmas tales, “A Christmas Carol” and “The Nutcracker,” into one intense story. Clara McScrooge, a bitter ballet mistress, takes a spiritual journey, guided by familiar apparitions, to restore her heart to joy.
The performance will take place at the Arts Center of the Ozarks. The times are as follows: Friday, December 21 at 11am and 7pm and Saturday, December 22 at 11am.
Tickets are $16 and can be purchased at:

Come join us for this show that will quickly become a holiday favorite!

{All of the proceeds from this show go to support our Scholarship fund Bella Luca, a program we are passionate about at TAPA. We believe that everyone should have an opportunity to dance and that more people should have exposure to the arts, and we want to make that possible in NWA. Come join us!}



“Grief, I’ve learned, is really just love. It’s all the love want to give but cannot. All that unspent love gathers up in the corners of your eyes, the lump in your throat, and in that hollow part of your chest.  Grief is just love with no place to go”

– Jamie Anderson

Two rival studios…forced together by fate and led by the relentless love of a mother.  We journey with them through loss, grief and the discovery of the reckless love of God.
