Ballet Under The Stars Coming To Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater Sept 22
GOODYEAR, Ariz. – The City of Goodyear announced today that Ballet Arizona’s 15th annual Ballet Under the Stars series is coming to Goodyear for a free performance at 7 p.m. on Sept. 22 at Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater.
Ballet Under the Stars allows Goodyear residents to enjoy a professional one-hour ballet presentation in a unique outdoor setting complete with stage, lighting, costumes and beautiful Arizona weather. Southwest Valley residents are encouraged to bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy a varied program, ranging from classical to contemporary ballet. The performance will be one of seven throughout the Valley from Sept. 20-29.
To help educate children in Goodyear about ballet, Ballet Arizona performers have been teaching ballet performances to third-grade students at Estrella Elementary School for an hour once a week this month as part of the production’s Class Act program. The third graders will dance on stage during the intermission of the Ballet Under the Stars performance on Sept. 22.
“Goodyear has a distinct sense of place with many cultural amenities, such as this ballet performance,” said Dianne Cripe, Public Art Specialist for the City of Goodyear. “The Ballet Under the Stars performance at Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater is another example of the high quality programs and entertainment options offered for our citizens.”
Ballet Under the Stars is generously supported by the City of Goodyear, Estrella by Newland Communities and other companies, organizations and cities from around the Valley. For more information, go to balletaz.org or call 623-882-7525.
