Art and Culture in Vallarta

Dance and theater

Puerto Vallarta features a wide range of art and especially contemporanean art. While besides the Santa Barbara Theater and the theater inside the installations of the C.U.C. no real theater is available, there are sufficient places and locations where artistic events can be performed. The local government provides with the "Los Arcos" open air theater a nice but small place for performances. This is important to know as its location at the end of the Malecon allways attracts many visitors and to get a seat one needs to be there an hour before the announced starting time.

Contemporanean Dance

Many performances show contemporanean art in the one or other way. Theater groups as well as individual artists have their presentations there, but the crown of all events is when You have the chance to see one of the dance events, organized by the local university of arts. This university of arts, which actually is in its pilot project, provides world class ballet and contemporary dance of the highest class.
