Tickets, tickets, tickets!

Ballet Arizona has so many exciting performances coming up. From Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in February, our iconic All Balanchine series in May, to a world premiere by Artistic Director, Ib Andersen, at Desert Botanical Garden set to Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, there is something for everyone. Interested in all three? You can purchase your loved one a Spring pack subscription and get their new year started off right!

As Olivia Newton-John says, “Let’s get physical, physical.”

With classes offered for children as young as 4 to adult open classes for people of all ages, our incredible teachers will have them twirling around in no time.
