Southern California Ballet is San Diego's premier youth ballet company, providing performance and artistic opportunities to dancers for over 30 years.

The Company is comprised of pre-professional dancers who have successfully passed the Cecchetti Grade 8 Exam and show promise and dedication in ballet.

SCB has a repertoire which includes classical ballets such as Sleeping Beauty, Coppelia, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, Paquita, and The Magic Flute, and more.

SCB has commissioned and premiered many new works from internationally renowned choreographers.  The most recent premieres and creations have come from LINES Ballet's Gregory Dawson with his ballets "In the Midst of a Southern Storm" and "Irreversible Time."

Company dancers are encouraged to continue taking their Cecchetti Professional Examinations, Grade 9 and Grade 10.  Many dancers have gone on to take Teaching Certificates in order to teach levels of Cecchetti Syllabi for SCB.  We have also had many alumni go into Physical Therapy, Yoga Certification, Choreography, and Dance Writing after graduation from SCB.

Company Members may be eligible for Merit-Based or Financial-Based Scholarships.  Applications can be picked up at the front desk.
