For the first time ever, Ballet Arizona fans will have the opportunity to get up-close-and-personal looks at the stunning and intricate costumes that the dancers wear on stage.
Attendees at Ballet Arizona’s inaugural Fashion & Fizz event can enjoy cocktails, sparkling wine, mingling, and a one-of-a-kind artistic fashion show. To highlight the evening, Ballet Arizona’s dancers will walk the runway in a beautiful collection of their ballet costumes. From classical tutus to contemporary ensembles, each ensemble is a work of art.
Fashion & Fizz attendees will also have a chance to win raffle prizes featuring some incredible local resorts, restaurants, and more. VIP tickets include light bites from Clever Koi, a behind-the-scenes tour of the costume shop, access to the VIP lounge, and more.
This event is presented by the Contemporary Council, Ballet Arizona's junior board, which cultivates a new generation of patrons through creative fundraising, events, and volunteering. All proceeds from this event will support Ballet Arizona, a nonprofit arts organization that is able to produce critically acclaimed works thanks to donations from generous patrons and the community.
