One of Sonoran Lifestyle’s favorite events —Ballet Under the Stars—is just around the corner.  Friday, September 23, at 7:00 p.m. in Fountain Park, Ballet Arizona kicks off its 2016-17 season. This free celebration of dance is a family tradition in Fountain Hills.

But Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate’s pre-ballet party is another fun tradition to be savored.  Plan to attend this year’s event and be sure to don a tutu….We’ll have a special prize for the best Tutu Adornment!  And, everyone will leave with a park “care package” of ice cold water and an insect repellent wipe!

Be sure to mark your calendar!  We wanted to give you time to gather up your friends, shake the wrinkles out of your tutu and plan to join us before the show.

What could be more fun than seeing Fountain Hills’ Former Mayor, Jay Schlum in a tutu, you ask?  Not much!

Come to the Tutu Preview on Friday, October 2nd, at Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate and join us as we toast the Fall entertainment season.  Who knows…maybe, just maybe, you’ll get a glimpse of a Grand Battement or a perfectly executed Plie  (not likely, but it will be entertaining, regardless!)  Our Annual Tutu Preview offers an assortment of wine and hors d’oeuvres plus a great opportunity to catch up with friends after the long summer and make plans for the exciting season ahead.

This year, we are hosting live music by The Art of Music, one of Fountain Hills favorite entertainment groups featuring Leslie and Ukiah Odum.  Their eclectic repertoire ranges from renaissance and classical to jazz, and always makes a gathering just bit more special.

Then, at 7:00, plan to head down to Ballet Under the Stars, a free presentation in Fountain Park by Ballet Arizona.  We’ll have cool water packs to take along, but suggest you bring a blanket or chairs to really enjoy the evening.

During “Tutu Preview” you’ll also have the opportunity to see the awesome plans for Park Place, the new downtown development featuring both residential and retail development.  Park Place is now underway with the Morning Star Senior Living Campus slated to open in late 2016.  And, if our awesome, local theater is of interest to you, we’ll have the Fountain Hills Theater folks available to sell tickets to the upcoming season.

So, call a friend you haven’t seen in a while and bring them along for a delightful prelude to one of Fountain Hills’ most memorable cultural events.

Ballet Arizona presents Ballet Under the Stars, 2013

One of the best kept secrets in the Valley is Ballet Arizona’s annual “Ballet Under the Stars” season kick-off with a unique outdoor performance in Fountain Park. The sunset silhouettes of classic dancers against the dessert sky are awe-inspiring…much like the famed Santa Fe Opera experience.   

But what transforms this grand experience into an unforgettable one is the pre-ballet “Tutu Preview Wine Reception,” a unique wine tasting event hosted by the team at Sonoran Lifestyle Real Estate and Lawrence Dunham Vineyard.  This year they will be pouring the newly released 2012 “Sky Island Viognier,” a beautiful Sauvignon-blanc style wine, paired with light appetizers.

The LDV estate-grown varietals are nurtured in the Chiricahua foothills of southern Arizona by winemakers Curt Dunham and Peggy Fiandaca, who are also local Fountain Hills residents.  Recognized for their excellence by the highly-regarded Wine Spectator jury after only 2 years in production, their signature Sirah, Petite Sirah and Grenache are the Arizona wine of choice at the Ritz-Carleton at Dove Mountain, Café Bianco, and Beckett’s Table, to name a few.  

For this evening, LDV is offering a special case (or mixed case) discount of 15% to those who pre-order wines to be picked up that evening. Think “Happy Holidays” and share this exclusive wine selection with clients and friends as a unique way to show that they are “one of a kind” to you.

You can purchase an individual bottle of wine or any combination of these rich Rhone varietals: Sirah, Petite Sirah, and Grenache.  LDV Wines August 2013 Order ahead by calling 602-320-1485 or email at info@LawrenceDunhamVineyards.com and your order will be ready for pick up.
