Each year, Ballet Arizona brings its graceful dancing off the stage at Symphony Hall and into the community.
Ballet Under the Stars is a series of free performances at parks throughout the Valley. Friday, the dancers come to the outdoor amphitheater at Tempe Center for the Arts.
The performance will showcase a combination of classical and contemporary works complete with a stage, lighting and costumes. Off stage, the setting is casual. Spectators are welcome to spread a picnic blanket or unfold a lawn chair.
And if you can’t make Friday’s show, Ballet Under the Stars occurs twice more, at 7 p.m. Saturday at Steele Indian School Park in Phoenix and 7 p.m. Sunday at Fountain Park in Fountain Hills.
