Help us continue our mission to inspire the community and create opportunities for young artists through the advancement of the art of ballet. Through Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre, hundreds of young dancers have learned the powerful role that dance plays in creating individual confidence and the discipline necessary for success as contributing members of society.

Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization focused on giving dancers and choreographers an opportunity to express their talents and to cultivate ballet excellence within the community.

Thank you to everyone who supported our August 2020 Fundraising Campaign 

In March, Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre was forced to cancel our annual Auction/Dinner event, one of our largest fundraisers of the year. And in April we had to cancel our “In Concert” performance at Cabrillo College. For May, we cancelled our end-of-season Emerging Choreographer’s Showcase.

The combination of these losses may put SCBT in a position of being unable to support our educational and enrichment activities for students and community members.

SCBT is working hard to weather this storm and remain open and functioning for our communities. With your support, we can come out the other side intact.

Santa Cruz Ballet Theatre serves the student community by providing performance opportunities for dancers ages 7 - 18, and serves the entire community by offering professional quality ballet performances for our local region twice a year. As with many performing arts organizations, springtime would have been Santa Cruz Ballet Theater's busiest performance and fundraising period.

Artistic Director Diane Cypher has made the transition to teaching our dancers via Zoom to keep them conditioned and connected while at home. Her guidance keeps dancers engaged, motivated, and strong, which prepares them for whatever comes next. Diane’s goal is to ensure that their art will not be taken from them by the current conditions. She has brought in guest instructors from studios across the West via Zoom to teach classes and keep these young dancers inspired and ready for the day when venues open back up.
