Ballet Meets Broadway March 24-27 at ‘All Balanchine’

PHOENIX – George Balanchine, known as The Father of American Ballet, broke ground when he put his twist on traditional ballet standards and techniques. Before his storied career at Ballet Arizona, Ib Andersen was mentored by the legendary choreographer during his tenure as a dancer at New York City Ballet. Now the company will bring the Big Apple to center stage. Ballet Arizona will take Balanchine’s works to the next level, including Slaughter on Tenth Avenue, a Broadway-inspired theatrical interpretation of the musical, On Your Toes.

Andersen, Ballet Arizona’s Artistic Director, will present three of Balanchine’s works during All Balanchine including one never before performed in Arizona, Bourrée Fantasque. The Valley’s only professional ballet company will present five performances of All Balanchine March 24-27 at Orpheum Theatre. Read More
