doing to develop the film industry here.

As I discussed last night, it is vital that individuals who care about
the arts become political active. The 2010 election is one of the most
vital in Arizona’s history. We MUST elect people who care about
PUBLIC education, our universities, solar and new technologies and the

Please take a moment to think about how YOU can get involved!
Together we can make a wonderful positive impact in the future of

ArtFare Ballet Company Joins Dance Classes Offered

26 06 2009

ArtFare Ballet

55 North Sixth Avenue

Tucson, Arizona 85701

520-440-1126 or 520-884-5124

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.

Classes are held on the third floor

Saturday: Parent/Child & Student 1:00- 2:20 pm

Friday: Adult Beginner 12:00 – 1:30 pm and 4:00 – 5:00 pm

Wednesday by arrangement with Director: 3:00pm and 5:00 pm

Men’s Classes Available

Company Rehearsals by arrangement of Teacher/Council

Schedules may vary.
