Ballet Under the Stars provides free ballet performances in four parks across the Phoenix metro area for more than 15,000 people annually. The program makes ballet easily available to underserved populations by eliminating barriers such as distance, ticket cost or the difficulty of travel due to a physical disability.
Ballet Under the Stars will take place in September 2020 and will travel to different parks around the Valley, including locales such as Tempe, Goodyear and Phoenix. The Halle grant will allow Ballet Arizona to continue providing free arts engagement to patrons across Maricopa County. The Foundation has been a generous and ongoing supporter of Ballet Arizona for many years. The organization, headed by Diane Halle, seeks to strengthen the daily opportunities and lifelong outcomes for the people and communities of Arizona.
