Happy World Piano Day to all who โ™ก this magical instrument. Sometimes I feel so intimidated by all the possibilities that it holds. Still, I strive to be better every day, whether I'm in the practice room, my living space, the dance studio or the stage. Keep practicing โ™ซ

Last week, Ballet Arizona premiered its first-ever Sensory-Friendly Performance Hour!

Our friends at The Centers for Habilitation joined us for a tour of the building, a class demonstration by The School of Ballet Arizona Studio Company, and a special sneak peek of Serenade by our dancers.

Thank you so much for visiting us! Our staff and volunteers loved having you!

A special shoutout to our friends at AT&T who generously volunteered their time last Thursday to make this program such a success!
