The traditions, work, and combinations of Mme. Mitrovich and Cecchetti Technique are at the core of ArtFare Ballet, though the program includes choreographing original ballet with original music. The work presented is influenced by Mr. George Zoritch, Stephanie Stiegers and Jane Matty, and Jose Valenzuela and his American Ballet Theater tradition and experience along with  Nancy Gambion who taught Cecchetti Technique at Pima Community College  and more recently Carrie Ragsdale, also from Pima.

ArtFare Ballet presents children’s performances, including original works, and in the near future, a new ballet featuring one of the great Capoesristas.

The last ballet performed, “Scheherazade”,  featured two company soloists and six local children.  Our goal is to not only expose children who might not have previous training (classical dance, music, drawing, painting, poetry, etc) but also to have these children participate. They learn as they go, making their own costumes, learning to get themselves on and off stage at the proper time, learning to try really hard.

ArtFare Ballet is also open to parent/senior volunteers with performance skills or those who wish to participate in weight bearing/stretch technique classes or other specialized works for all ages.  Participation to be determined by the ArtFare Ballet teacher’s council.
