What is Dancers’ Choice?
Dancers’ Choice is Artist Relief Fund’s annual performance at Dorrance Theatre. The evening begins at 6:00 pm with a silent auction, then the theatre doors open at 7:00 pm for a performance staged and performed entirely by the dancers of Ballet Arizona. To cap off the evening, guests are invited to a catered reception where they will get to mix and mingle with the dancers.

Dancer’s Choice allows audiences to see excerpts from Ballet Arizona company repertoire as well as world premieres by company dancers. In the last 9 years, ARF has offered the opportunity for young artists to choreograph on a professional company and has presented over 30 world premieres.

What is Artist Relief Fund?

The Artist Relief Fund is to help provide support for dancers at Ballet Arizona. This financial support is to help the dancers during times of injury, personal hardship, and career transitions. All while educating the community and creating meaningful relationships. In 2013, the Artist Relief Fund was created by Ballet Arizona dancers Kenna Draxton and Joseph Cavanaugh. During 2019, the Artist Relief Fun included the assistance of physical and mental health maintenance for our dancers. Join us for artist relief fund’s first performance since 2020! Dancers’ Choice is on April 1, 2023 – head to our performance page for more information.
