Opened in 1975, the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts presents a dynamic, culturally diverse season of dance, jazz, classical and world music, theater and satire. The philosophy behind the Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts is more than just presenting performances for the sake of enjoyment (although they are enjoyable!) but also to create opportunities for audiences to have thought-provoking experiences and interactions, to create events of interest to worldwide audiences, and to foster creative expression, diversity in thought, and awareness of cultural heritage.
