This 5-lecture series is series designed to give attendees an opportunity to dive into the rich history of dance, learn about the great influencers of ballet, and understand the art form on a deeper level. Lectures will be presented in a discussion-style format and attendees are encouraged to participate, ask questions, and follow their own paths of inquiry.

Panoramic 2019: Celebration Dance Project | June 22nd – 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm | Tempe Center for the Arts (Studio)
Panoramic 2019: Celebration Dance Project is an independently organized community performance happening at the end of the month! It sprung from a conviction that performing opportunity should be given not only to the elite and professional dancers but also to any dancers who wish to showcase their work and share their love for dance with their respective dance communities. The mission of this project is to provide a venue where dancers are given the opportunity to perform in a safe and inclusive environment.
Ballet Arizona’s own Dance for Parkinson’s disease students will be opening the performance with a special piece choreographed and rehearsed by Ballet Arizona instructor Debbie Braganza. We are so excited for the opportunity and wish them the best!
