Join LA Free Concerts for a breathtaking evening of dance featuring the incredible Aspen Santa Fe Ballet (ASFB). Called “a breath of fresh air” by the New York Times, ASFB features top global choreographers, distinctive groundbreaking works and virtuoso dancers. Under the direction of executive director Jean-Philippe Malaty and artistic director Tom Mossbrucker, ASFB has forged a bold vision that has fostered a jewel of a dance company in the American West and beyond. The company’s unique pioneering spirit arises from a paired set of home cities: Aspen, nestled high in the Rocky Mountains, and Santa Fe, gracing the majestic Southwestern plateau. For sixteen years, the company has served as a prestigious incubator and a showcase for choreographic invention to popular and critical acclaim.

“Took hold of your heart and never let go—it still gives me chills.”—Sarah Kaufman, The Washington Post 

It is perfectly ok to come by yourself--you won't be by yourself for long. You will be warmly greeted by our Host and introduced to fellow members.

  • ***MsA***

    A couple of people posted about what to wear. Whatever you'd like and however you'd like to be perceived. I will say it's not a gala so no formal gowns and not a club, so no itty bitty dresses. :)

    February 22, 2014

  • Shantel

    Long black dress. Check. Tonight dear God let there be room for dress-up. :)

    February 22, 2014

  • lisa

    I did not see on their site where it said " 21 and over"
    Where was this posted?
