About

Cardinal Ballet Company (CBC) is an enthusiastic group of classically-trained dancers who love to perform. Founded in 1993 by Julia Ball-Dugan and Jennifer Mott and formerly known as Stanford Ballet, the group is Stanford University’s first ballet company. CBC is committed to enhancing the Stanford community by encouraging students to participate in or attend dance performances.

Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, some having trained in small schools, and others having performed in professional companies. CBC puts on two shows a year: Nutcracker in the fall and Cardinal Dance Fusion in the spring. We have also performed in a variety of other venues, including Stanford Dance Marathon and Viennese Ball. Members are encouraged to take the Advanced Ballet class through Stanford's Dance Department, as well as participate in and organize pointe, pas de deux, and variation workshops throughout the year.

Auditions

Sunday, October 2
12:00-2:00 PM, Roble 115

Make sure to arrive at least 15 minutes early to register, and come ready to dance. Girls should bring pointe shoes if they have experience with pointe work. Please stop by our booth at the Activities Fair (Friday, September 30th in White Plaza from 12:00-4:00 PM) or contact us if you have any questions about our company or continuing ballet at Stanford.
