Barre and Grill

Yes, it’s visually stunning. Yes, we agree that trained dancers have leg muscles even the fiercest bodybuilder would envy. But unless you’re light in the loafers or you pee sitting down, chances are you’d rather have a spinal tap than sit through two hours of Swan Lake. Ballet Arizona hopes to change your mind with short, easy-to-digest original dance numbers and scenes from traditional ballets at Ballet Under the Stars. Hey, it’s free. It’s outdoors. You can bring your own dinner and drinks (we’re particularly fond of sneaking a little Jack in our Coke, but shh, don’t tell). If nothing else, you can score points with your sweetie for being so “open” to culture – without spending one effin’ dime.
