Valencia Arts Center

With three dance studios, a black box theatre, a recital hall, four music practice rooms, visual art classroom, class piano lab, art gallery, dressing room, a costume shop, and administrative offices, the Valéncia Arts Center offers quality facilities for quality programming. The VAC primarily exists to be the home of the Minnesota Conservatory for the Arts.

The Center also provides a community based facility for music recitals, theatre workshops, a martial arts school, and visual arts exhibits, while nurturing relationships with the Saint Mary’s Department of Theatre and Dance, Great River Shakespeare Festival, Winona International Dancers, Winona High School Dance Team, Page Theatre and Cotter High School. The VAC also functions as an incubator for small emerging arts and cultural groups.
