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.
In the evening I volunteered to do the costumes for a street theater group, and there I learned how to make something out of nothing and how to observe the way fabrics move, and how the director and the actors work.
Take a peek behind the curtain as Ballet Arizona dancers share the physical, emotional and mental strength Balanchine performances demand and what it’s like to learn from one of George Balanchine’s protégés, Ib Andersen.
