Arts Center A part of the WVU campus since 1968, the recently renamed Canady Creative Arts Center thrives on bringing live performances to the community. At the CCAC, you might catch a Mountain Stage performance at the 1,400-seat Lyell B. Clay Concert Theatre or witness the talent of creative arts students in a more intimate venue. No matter what you’re seeing, this venue will enhance the show. 1436 Evansdale Drive,

go hand in hand, and dance is a positive and much-needed outlet. Many students leave their stress and problems at the door before walking into the dance studios—they call it “stop, drop, and dance.” They have multiple genres of dance, for both the student who wants to dance one day a week or the college prep student who would dance two or more days a week. It’s the same instruction at a different pace. They love to celebrate birthdays and milestones at the studio. Students take in treats, and the group sings and takes a picture together. Kat & Co loves to be with kids on their special days!

Students perform in major productions around the region—a great opportunity for young performers. 9 Brookstone Plaza, Green Bag Road, 304.291.5287,, @katandcodance on FB, @katz5678 on IG

BEST ART GALLERY ArtMuseumofWest Virginia University In 2015, the Creative Arts Center at West Virginia University achieved a dream come true: a unique, in-house art museum dedicated to bringing the world of art to West Virginia. “The museum is about bringing West Virginia artists back to the state,” says director Todd Tubutis, “but we’re not afraid to bring them in from all over the world, too.” The museum’s 5,000-piece collection enriches the university, the community, and the state. Don’t miss these new exhibits: “True Colors: Picturing Identity,” examining art and the human form, and “From the Mountain,” displaying renowned West Virginia potter Malcolm Davis’s works.
