San Diego Ballet

San Diego Ballet, a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization, was founded in 1991 in close association with Robin Sherertz Morgan’s San Diego School of Ballet and features a strong contemporary repertory created by resident choreographer, Javier Velasco.

San Diego Ballet has a large varied repertoire and continues to enjoy growth and critical acclaim with original pieces such as Mambomania (music of Perez Prado), Luna Lunera (with poetry of Garcia Lorca and music composed by David Burge), Opus Swing (to music of Ellington, Miller and Goodman), Sweet Dreams (to the music of Patsy Cline), The Brontes, (a musical based on the lives of the three historical sisters). Balanchine’s works include Serenade, Concerto Barroco and Rubies. More classical pieces include Nutcracker, Flower Festival, Paquita, Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Romeo & Juliet. The San Diego Ballet has collaborated with the San Diego Symphony, San Diego Chamber Orchestra, and San Diego Camarada during their seasons as well as dance organizations such as Culture Shock and others.

San Diego Ballet’s mission is to excite, enrich, and entertain its diverse audience through an imaginative presentation of quality classical and contemporary dance.
