San Diego Civic Youth Ballet believes everyone should have the opportunity to dance. Our mission is to provide the youth of San Diego the opportunity to study, understand and appreciate, through education and participation, the art of ballet, and to enrich the cultural life of the community. SDCYB strives to cultivate a learning environment based on integrity and trust and one that values diversity amongst its students, faculty, staff and patrons. SDCYB promotes excellence in all endeavors and a spirit of service to the San Diego community through sustainable practices that prioritize a child’s desire to dance over their ability to pay.
San Diego Civic Youth Ballet was founded in 1945. For 77 years, SDCYB has offered high-quality, affordable, year-round ballet training in the Casa del Prado studios and produces four major productions at the Casa del Prado Theater each year. SDCYB also has a vibrant Community Outreach Program to bring the art of ballet to San Diego youth. "Ballet for the Classroom" provides dance education to children in public schools and "Ballet for Me!" provides a classical ballet class for children with unique physical needs.
