Ballet Under the Stars Park Performance series coming soon

PHOENIX, Ariz. (KSAZ) - It's a night for movement in mother nature. We're talking about Ballet Under the Stars Park Performance series. The free four day event is put on every year by Ballet Arizona and Fox 10's Marcy Jones has a sneak peak.

If practice makes perfect, then the audience of this year's Ballet Under the Stars is in for a flawless performance.

"Our dancers have been working hard over the last couple of weeks," said Alexander Papazian with Ballet Arizona. "We have two programs that we've been rehearsing all at the same time."

The picturesque annual event brings ballet out of the theater and into the great outdoors. This year's series runs from September 12-15.

For years, Ballet Arizona has graced the Valley with the free series of performances in parks across Valley cities. Over the course of four days, Phoenix, Goodyear, Fountain Hills and Tempe will each host a magical evening of moments in mother nature.

"Bring your blankets, your lawn chairs, a picnic, a jacket, we are outdoors under the stars," said Papazian.

If you haven't been to a performance before, don't worry, Ballet Arizona says this night is perfect for ballet beginners.

"If you've never been to ballet before, the Ballet Under the Stars Park Performance series is a wonderful way to introduce yourself to the wonder and magic of dance," said Papazian.
