Thank you for being such an instrumental part of Ballet Arizona’s 2016-2017 season. Together we’ve traveled the world – from India to Verona to Rio. We are thrilled to conclude our season at Desert Botanical Garden this May with “Topia” and hope to see you at “All Balanchine” this week.

I continue to do a Balanchine program each year because, in my opinion, he is the number one choreographer that we have ever seen in ballet. There is no one like him; no one is as diverse as him and I don’t think there ever will be.
