If you are new to ballet, love ballet, or love someone who loves ballet, a Ballet Under the Stars performance is a perfect fall date for you!  Every September, Ballet Arizona performs professional dances, mixing traditional and modern styles, in outdoor locations around the valley.

You sit on the grass and enjoy the setting, the music, and the dancing.  Of course, it is a fun evening for the ballet enthusiast.  The exotic location adds novelty and romance.  This also makes it a good evening for someone who -ahem- doesn't love ballet.   You can move around and talk and even buy food from food trucks.

Best of all, the performances are FREE!  Yes, this is a romantic, cultural date that is absolutely free.  Unless, of course, you buy lots of food from the food trucks.

Our photos are from a performance at Estrella Lakeside Ampitheater.  They are blurry because it is extremely difficult to take photos of moving subjects, in the dark, from a long way away, without a flash.  However, you can see how lovely the setting is.  The performance was a little over an hour long. There was ample parking, a large lake with a walking trail around it, and food trucks.  We can't promise anything for other locations except that there will be a ballet performance.  To find dates, times, and locations for other performances, visit www.balletaz.org.
