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 17 years and we are so proud to say that this year it has reached its largest audience ever – with 6 performances spanning from Tempe to Sun City West and Fountain Hills to Casa Grande, stopping at Phoenix, and Goodyear along the way.

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!
