SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts will present two performances by the acclaimed Aspen Santa Fe Ballet on Thursday, April 13, and Saturday, April 15.

Tickets start at $39 and are available through www.ScottsdalePerformingArts.org or 480-499-8587.

Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s bold vision – top global choreographers, distinctive groundbreaking repertoire and virtuoso dancers – has fostered a jewel of a dance company in the American West. The company’s pioneering spirit arises from its dual set of home cities: Aspen, nestled in the Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, gracing the southwestern plateau.

Shaping the cultural landscape of these communities – and influencing the dance field at large – Aspen Santa Fe Ballet, led by Artistic Director Tom Mossbrucker, has earned a national reputation for its unique style, athleticism and innovative repertoire. Since its founding in 1996, the company has charmed audiences and critics alike with its young, virtuoso dancers who perform distinctive groundbreaking works by top global choreographers.

Aspen Santa Fe Ballet’s program will include Eudaemonia (2017) by choreographer Cherice Barton, Silent Ghost (2015) by Alejandro Cerrudo and Huma Rojo (2016) by Cayetano Soto.

Mellon Foundation, with additional support from the National Endowment for the Arts.
