At Stanford University
Come celebrate the holidays with Cardinal Ballet's annual Nutcracker production! This year, we're presenting our first full-length production of the holiday classic, featuring classical ballet, social dancing, hip hop, guest choreography, and guest artists.
We hope you'll be able to join us!
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, 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 studios, 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.
