Learn How to Support This Wonderful Program!

A rare gift is given to the widespread Valley community each year – the gift of beautiful ballet performed outdoors “under the stars” – FOR FREE – in parks around the Valley, and beyond.

For many Valley residents, their very first exposure to live professional ballet is Ballet Under the Stars. You may even know a child who has participated in the Class Act program and danced on stage during the intermission of a Ballet Under the Stars performance.

This performance series has been delighting Arizona residents for 18 years – this year with 5 performances around the Valley entertaining residents in Sun City West, Goodyear, Phoenix, Tempe, and Fountain Hills.

Will you consider supporting Ballet Under the Stars and the expenses of bringing a live ballet production into a park? Expenses include dancers, costumes, and music royalties, in addition to the stage and lighting required. Each performance costs nearly $50,000!

Please consider making a gift to Ballet Under the Stars here and help continue this special tradition of bringing families and friends together in parks across the Valley – and beyond – to enjoy an evening of ballet. And please tell your family, friends, and neighbors to attend in a nearby location – they can thank YOU for helping to bring it to the stage!
