• Each Spring Arts Education in Peoria Unified celebrates the Arts with the Annual Arts & Cultural Festival and although this year’s Festival may look and feel a little different, there is still much to celebrate regarding the Arts in Peoria!  Over the last few weeks our 140 Arts Educators have selected various pieces of student artwork, chosen outstanding Band, Strings, and Choir students to spotlight, and shared performance highlights from their Theatre and Dance students and are excited to share the celebration of these students and the Arts with our community. Over the course of the next 7 days, each day of the virtual 2021 Peoria Arts and Cultural Festival will start off with a special video introduction from various members of the Peoria Unified family along with a different high school and the elementary schools that feed into that high school. Be on the lookout for your students’ school each day of our celebration.   

      Foothills DanceAZ Performance

      • The DanceAZ school residency is a unique arts program designed to supplement students’ social/emotional learning and application of 21st Century skills. Over the course of 8 - 12 weeks, students receive basic ballet instruction and learn choreographed movement that culminates in a performance to showcase what they have accomplished. Peoria Unified and Foothills Fine Arts Academy was proud to partner with Ballet Arizona in the 2021 school year to support our students. Please enjoy the performance that capstones the work of our students and Ballet Arizona’s Team.
