Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring the community and creating opportunities for young artists through the advancement of the art of ballet.
Founded in 1982, Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre is a pre-professional company of talented dancers who are dedicated to their pursuit of this beautiful art form. Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre is an Honor member of Regional Dance America, and the only company which upholds RDA's strict standards of excellence in the entire South Bay/Santa Cruz/Monterey area. Dancers are chosen by open audition annually in August.
Artistic Directors Robert Kelley and Diane Cypher have many years of experience as professional dancers, instructors, choreographers and directors. In addition to preparing young dancers for careers in the profession, they help build leaders in our dancers by teaching work ethics, organization, self-confidence and social skills that will serve them all of their lives.
