Give your students the opportunity to experience dance with Ballet Arizona!
Arts education can play a critical role in a child’s academic and social development. Our Student Matinee series reaches approximately 7,000 students annually, and, for many, is their first introduction to live performance. Though the program is known for its popularity among educators and students, in recent years, we have also seen a rising interest among community groups as well. Ballet Arizona gives these audiences an opportunity to watch ballet in a fully produced theatrical setting at Phoenix Symphony Hall and hopes to inspire them to think beyond boundaries and see what is possible.
Student Matinee attendees will see an excerpt from the full production of the ballet. The performance will be preceded by a short introduction and will end with a Q&A with the dancers.
