Ballet Schools in California- Santa Barbara area


Recommended Posts


I have an old student who is attending college in the Santa Barbara area and would like to continue her training outside of school. She's in her early 20s and would love a school that offering intermediate/advanced level adult classes with the possibility of performing in a Nutcracker or something to that effect.


I know that State Street Ballet is in the area. Are there any other schools?

Santa Barbara Festival Ballet, Denise Rinaldi, director. They use the Cecchetti method.

I second Temps de Cuisse. Santa Barbara Festival Ballet is a great school. The main advanced teachers are also faculty at UCSB. They are a part of RDA. They offer adult intermediate and advanced classes. They have an annual Nutcracker at the Arlington with a live orchestra. I highly recommend it.

Thank you so much! I'll be sure to mention it to my student. It sounds like just what she's looking for.
