Los Gatos Ballet is a premier ballet school in the San Jose area that provides exceptional performances of The Nutcracker and full-length ballets along with outreach programs to our local community.
Our Ballet School offers pre-professional classical ballet training from ages 4 to adult. We focus on a progressive approach to promote health and well being while maximizing each dancer's potential. Through our established levels and curriculum, we support and challenge our dancers in their physical, mental, artistic and emotional development. Performance experience in full-length ballets such as The Nutcracker, spring shows, company repertoire and community performances are an integral part of our training. Through our holistic approach, dancers find themselves well prepared for their future. Although several of our students choose careers with prestigious ballet companies, others find that their years with Los Gatos Ballet prove to be enrichment to their lives both personally and professionally, regardless of the career path they choose.
Our Ballet Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization and is committed to supporting our mission to inspire and cultivate appreciation and love of dance by providing quality educational and training programs, superb performances, and collaboration with other arts organizations. Through our Leaps and Bounds program, we have developed partnerships with Los Gatos, San Jose and surrounding area schools, providing high-quality outreach education and enrichment opportunities to the community. We also enrich our community by providing performances of The Nutcracker at The Flint Center for the Performing Arts in Cupertino as well as a full-length ballet each spring at the West Valley College Theatre in Saratoga. Our spring ballets include Swan Lake, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Alice in Wonderland and Coppélia,
