In addition to what ^Aaliya said, let's look at only a handful of amazing venues in Phoenix/Chandler/Scottsdale/Tempe.

Amazing, amazing theater. Tech crew (Dean and Bill) have done a million dance shows, and this theater is MADE FOR dance. Kavya (Black Swan) and I had our Arangetram there, and have done multiple dance shows for school there and know the place inside and out. There is a huge green room off to stage right, and a dance studio connected to the back of the stage for teams to practice before and after tech run as well...just to name a few pros.

Located right in the middle of Scottsdale - close to a lot of possible venues for after party. Also complete with a very very skilled tech crew. multiple, multiple dressing rooms downstairs.

One of the most prestigious and beautiful stages to perform on. They've held Lion King the musical here, so you know it has to be good :p. This theater is in downtown Phoenix, and again close to a TON of possible venues for the after party. We could probably find a hotel, the after party, and the theater within walking distance of each other.

Another venue that was recently redesigned - it is gorgeous now. Not as familiar with this theater, but enjoyed performing there. I do remember spacious, and multiple dressing rooms, and areas in the back of the auditorium where teams could practice on a rotation schedule.
This theater belongs to ASU - so you know what that means: close to the ASU campus, and there are A TON of Indians who go to school there. A TON. ASU is near down town Phoenix ~10 miles away. Sonu Nigam performed here when he came to concert - brought a HUGE crowd, just as Bollywood America will.
