Support Ballet Arizona’s Education & Community Programs
As a professional ballet company, Ballet Arizona is dedicated to teaching, creating, and performing outstanding classical and contemporary ballet, and to increasing the understanding and appreciation for dance within all communities of central Arizona.
Ballet Arizona is dedicated to creativity and excellence in its performances and programs. The company believes that innovative and provocative approaches to presenting dance is an essential part of the creative process.
Ballet Arizona’s education and community engagement programs are designed to reach audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds. Our offered programs include:
- Ballet Under the Stars – our season-opening series of free performances held each fall in parks throughout the metropolitan area.
- Class Act – a program for upper-elementary students who learn to “choreograph” their own dance work under the guidance of Ballet Arizona dancers; the students perform their work at Ballet Under the Stars performances.
- Student Matinees – give school children and their teachers the opportunity to watch a professional ballet production in a formal theater setting for a nominal cost ($4 per student for The Nutcracker and $2 for other shows).
