Learning in Downtown Arlington Texas
In Arlington, we have countless opportunities for you and your family to relax, learn and play. We are proud to regard our Downtown as exemplifying the classic Arts and Sciences and providing you with boundless relaxation and pleasure.
Learning through the Arts
Through the rotating exhibits and galleries at our Museum of Art, you are encouraged to learn and discover creations from classic and contemporary artists in all media from the famous to the not-so. The Theatre Arlington performs nine stage shows each year and we present a wide variety of productions including classics, comedy and melodrama. Since 1954, Miss Persis Dance Studio teaches ballet to hip-hop disciplines. The Studio also offers cotillion classes for manners and etiquette. And our Creative Arts Theatre & School provides drama education with after-school and summer camp programs for budding actors and actresses. Hatha Raja yoga, known for postures and concentrating on perfecting the body is the focus at our Yoga Center. Here you can celebrate your wholeness and health with classes for all levels. Or you may choose to reduce stress by visiting one of our 80 parks including a new skateboard park as well as playing golf, tennis and swimming.
