Since ballet is mainly a classical art form, sometimes we forget the athleticism and even sensuality behind it. Well Ballet Arizona’s next production, PLAY, will have even the men, who may not enjoy a night at the ballet, in awe.
PLAY is bringing sexy back with a sex-appeal theme of sensuality. From passionate to playful, evocative to elegant, PLAY showcases the dynamism of Ballet Arizona’s world-class artists. From solo, to pas de deux, to ensemble, this ballet will leave you spellbound with its breadth of artistic accomplishment. Come and experience the scope of artistic excellence that will turn heads this summer at Washington D.C.’s Kennedy Center.
