Boots and Ballet

This year Ballet Tucson is reinventing its major Spring Fundraiser, the Urban Picnic, as Boots and Ballet—a family affair with a Western flavor. The fundraiser supports Ballet Tucson—Tucson’s only professional dance company.

Boots and Ballet at the Stardance Event Center on Sunday, March 23, will include roping demonstrations, line-dancing, and great music. Highlights will include a silent auction of art and other unique items along with an energetic live auction of one-of-a-kind “boot boxes,” paintings and other fine art.  Boots and Ballet is an authentic Tucson experience for the entire family.  Enjoy prickly pear mimosas, lemonade and beer, and be treated to a chuck wagon style lunch. The horseshoe hunt is sure to delight the younger guests.

Dig out your best western wear and ride on out to Stardance Event Center nestled in the Sombrero Peak area of the Tucson Mountains.  Stardance is an easy drive, a few minutes off of the I-10 Cortaro Road exit.  Entertainment will be provided by Bill Ganz Western Band, Cowboy Poet Eldon Housley, a roping demonstrations by the Tucson Arizona Boys Chorus, and special performances by Ballet Tucson’s own talented dancers!

Silent and live auctions showcasing collectible regional art, jewelry, and even vintage treasures will be featured.  Special “boot boxes”—Western style lunch boxes—by local artists will be a highlight of the live auction. The grand finale will be Western dance lessons led by Chris Candalario and dancing to the live music of the Bill Ganz Western Band.

Boots and Ballet is a great day for kids and adults, all the while helping to keep Ballet Tucson on its toes as Tucson’s Professional ballet company.
