Contemporary Moves celebrates masterful and diverse choreography, music and tone with works from both emerging and celebrated choreographers. This program kicks off our 36th Anniversary season with an evening of three short but dynamic ballets, similar to a collection of short stories.

In Creases

Choreography by Justin Peck
Music by Philip Glass

Set to Philip Glass’ “Four Movements for Two Pianos,” In Creases showcases the virtuosity of the dancers with fast-paced and intricately patterned choreography. A true feast for both eyes and ears, In Creases kicks off Ballet Arizona’s 2021-2022 season.

Les Patineurs

Choreography by Sir Frederick Ashton
Music by Giacomo Meyerbeer

After its Ballet Arizona premiere in 2019, this charming collection of vignettes by Sir Frederick Ashton is skating back to the stage as we gladly welcome cooler weather here in the desert. This one-act series of divertissements evokes the movements of ice-skating and invites viewers to escape to a simpler time.


Choreography by Nayon Iovino
Music by Josiel Perez and Company

Nayon Iovino, named “Best Up-and-Coming Choreographer” by AZCentral brings back this electric audience-favorite that he created in 2019 to honor Artistic Director Ib Andersen’s 20th Anniversary with Ballet Arizona. Don’t miss this fun and festive Latin-inspired celebration featuring live music performed by Josiel Perez and Company.

Les Patineurs
