Cardinal Ballet Company logo
We are Cardinal Ballet Company, an enthusiastic group of classically trained dancers who love to perform.


Founded in 1993 by Julia Ball-Dugan and Jennifer Mott, Cardinal Ballet Company (CBC) is Stanford's first and only ballet student group. Our members come from diverse backgrounds, ranging from small studios to professional companies.

CBC puts on two shows a year: Nutcracker in the fall and Cardinal Dance Fusion in the spring. We have also performed at various other venues, including Stanford Dance Marathon and Viennese Ball.

Members are encouraged to take Stanford's Advanced Ballet class, as well as participate in and organize pointe, pas, and variation workshops throughout the year.
