AXIS Events


Realizing our commitment to making theatre matter to more people, AXIS offers free cultural programs on the Globe’s Copley Plaza, led by local artists and craftspeople. The Globe’s unique physical location—and now our social media platforms—are participatory art venues where we make opportunities for connectivity and creative placemaking. AXIS is an effort to broaden our concept of audience by encompassing diverse, multigenerational constituencies from communities across San Diego County.

This year’s lineup includes:

  • Saturday, July 31, 10:00 – 11:00 a.m.: Fit Body by Ashley All-Ages Dance Class;
    • YouTube sensation Fit Body by Ashley is back. Come groove with us this Saturday, July 31 from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on The Old Globe’s outdoor plaza in beautiful Balboa Park. Ashley Chatman is an online weight loss coach, dance enthusiast, and expert at making fitness fun. She helps female entrepreneurs and at-home working women lose weight, keep it off for good, and create fun, healthy, and sustainable lifestyles they enjoy—all without restrictive diets, giving up their favorite foods, and confusing gym workouts.
