‘Ballet Under the Stars’ series promises relaxing evenings under the Arizona sky in September.

To kick off the 2016-17 season, Ballet Arizona invites local residents to spend a relaxing evening under the Arizona sky as the company continues its annual season opening tradition, Ballet Under the Stars. These community performances will take place from Sept. 22 through Sept. 30 at five locations across the Valley. Free and open to the public, Ballet Under the Stars allows the local community to enjoy dance in a unique outdoor setting complete with a stage, lighting, costumes and beautiful Arizona weather.

As the only professional ballet company in the Valley, Ballet Arizona is thrilled to present this gift to residents as part of its commitment to the community, delighting audiences with the series for 18 years.
