At Northern California Ballet we strive to develop a love of dance, accurate technique, and all of the foundation skills and knowledge necessary to pursue a professional career in dance for those students who wish to do so. At the same time, we take care to provide a healthy environment for growth, nurturing an attitude of team work and cooperation as a path to the confidence, grace and strength required for success throughout all of life's adventures. In this, dance is a model of life. Since 1983 NCB has produced such ballet classics as Coppélia, Petrouchka, Sleeping Beauty, La Sylphide, Cinderella, Giselle, The Nutcracker, A Midsummer's Night's Dream, Don Quixote, Romeo and Juliet and Dracula. Local and regional dancers are encouraged to audition for placement in the company's performances.
