Phoenix Ballet (formerly known as Ballet & Friends) is a non-profit organization bringing the beauty and joy of classical ballet productions to Phoenix and locations around the globe.
We believe Ballet enriches and heals the spirit, bringing community and creativity to lives in this outstanding growing city. Phoenix Ballet provides scholarships to the highest caliber of young dancers and produces the finest dances the world stage has ever seen.
Former Principle Dancer of Teatr Wielki in Łódź as well as The National Opera in Warsaw. Slawomir founded “Ballet and Friends” in 1982 (Now Phoenix Ballet) as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to providing only the highest quality ballet education and performance possible.
Gifts from foundations, corporations and individuals comprise the preponderance of the organization’s budget. Financial contributions to our organization produce a prism effect as they disperse light to enhance the lives of young dancers as well as a diverse array of children throughout the Valley.
