Our ABT Halloween Party was great fun! We had delightful activities and lots of Dancing!!! All age groups enjoyed this party. Amazingly, not one little one cried the whole time.  It lasted almost a full three hours. The coloring center was a success, We featured outline photos from he movie "Frozen." Chic the photographer said he wanted to color too, but he was too busy... :)

Speaking of photos, we have posted quite a few on Arizona Ballet Theatre's Facebook pages - there seem to be two different ones so look again if you dint see the photo album.

Now we are creating a Halloween Eve Party gallery. Just click on the ABT Photo Galleries heading at the top of this page to see our fun party.  We intend to keep posting additional party shots for the next month or so.

Avery, Kiri, Mina, and Molly  working on a Ribbon Dance before their Jazz Class started today. Will this be part of the Holiday Costume Party this Friday? Come at 5:30 tomorrow and see...(;-)

Monday September 14th, 2015

Good Morning,

Monday Morning Ballet will begin at 9AM Sharp with Miss Cecily!  

All classes will happen TODAY & ALL WEEK at Arizona Ballet Theatre:)

Keep in mind - A dancer student must remember to bring all  dance shoes,  various accessories for putting up hair securely, and other items that might be needed to properly take care of your instrument of the dance - YOU - so that you can participate in your classes with full concentration of Mind & Body.

Too many classes in the Junior Division are being taken in socks!  If you lost or misplaced your Ballet Slippers, Jazz or Tap Shoes, you must purchase new ones:)

If your shoes are uncomfortable, you need to talk about it with your parents and your teacher before or after Class - not during:)

In order to get the most out of your Dance Classes, you need to be fully prepared.  This simple truth cannot be over emphasized!!

Good Dancers Are Always Well Prepared!

See you at the Studio, ready to move and learn!

Come learn with the Tucson’s Master of Modern Dance, World Renowned choreographer and Renaissance Man, Norman Walker.

Many of you may not be aware that Norman was recently honored with a permanent plague in Jacob’s Pillow, in Massachusetts.  


Not only did Norman perform there with his own company, he was Director of Jacob’s Pillow from 1975 - 1979;  Norman "was able to bring stability to Jacob’s Pillow when its future was uncertain.  While maintaining the highest standards, he worked creatively to pave the way for a new generation.” 

That is a direct quote from his New Plaque! I could’t have said it better myself!

I will be continuing work on "The Longest Time" in my Teen/Adult classes AND starting choreographing for "The Pizzicata Polka" with my younger students:)

I am feeling very creative after my surgery, and am looking ahead to an amazing semester with all of you at Arizona Ballet Theatre, Tucson's Boutique Dance Studio with a family focus, and an intellectual bent:)

Come Dance & Be Happy with Grace, Mia, Norman, and Cecily TODAY!


This is the second week of the Fall Semester 2015.
I cannot wait to see everyone!
