From Plies to Putts, There’s Entertainment for Everyone in Estrella September 29th

The Estrella Lakeside Amphitheater and The Golf Club of Estrella are the places to be in the West Valley on Friday, Sept. 29. In the morning, the Nicklaus Design golf course at Estrella will host the 2023 WESTMARC Golf Classic. WESTMARC, the Western Maricopa Coalition is a public-private partnership of the 15 communities, the business community and the educational sector in the West Valley of the Greater Phoenix region including the City of Goodyear.

Later in the day, just as the sun is setting, Ballet Arizona’s annual Ballet Under the Stars performances will take the stage at the Lakeside Amphitheater.

Ballet Under the Stars is a free event and is open to the public. It’s the perfect show for the entire family and a great way to introduce ballet to those who haven’t experienced it.

The evening features a fully staged live performance by the professional company dancers of Ballet Arizona while also showcasing performances choreographed by local school students through the Class Act program. Each year, Ballet Arizona’s professional dancers provide a three-week dance training class for students in four elementary schools across the Valley. Estrella Mountain Elementary School dance students will perform. Guests are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, and picnics as they experience these beautiful performances in this unique Estrella setting.

Additionally, WESTMARC’s Annual Golf Classic is an excellent opportunity for golfers and non-golfers to spend a day networking, experiencing a great golf course, enjoying Estrella’s beautiful weather, all while supporting economic development in the West Valley. This sold-out event is popular every year as participants create connections and camaraderie on the course.

“We’re thrilled that two of Estrella’s signature amenities will be in the spotlight,” said Jeff Zimmerman, Director of Entitlements & Development for Estrella. “We’re also honored that these fantastic organizations, WESTMARC and Ballet Arizona, are bringing two of their events to Estrella. It’s going to be a great morning and evening.”
