Milwaukee, Wisconsin, is the largest city in the state, with a population of approximately 600,000, and is a commercial and industrial hub for the Great Lakes region. For 42 years, the Milwaukee Ballet has been providing professional ballet and education (through their ballet school) to the community.

Milwaukee Ballet is teaming with the City of Milwaukee to create schematic designs for the Harmony Initiative, a new cultural facility in the Downtown Center District. The facility will integrate programming and generate shared revenue for three organizations: Milwaukee Ballet, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Peck School of the Arts, and Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Medicine. Renowned Milwaukee-based architects La Dallman have been commissioned to design the catalytic performing arts, higher education, and health and wellness space. Milwaukee Ballet, the university, and medical college jointly serve more than 85,000 people.
