Performances for School Children

City Ballet offers a complete ballet education package for school age children, including in-theatre performances and teacher instruction packages.

Ballet Goes to School

City Ballet comes to your school for a fun and informative 40-minute assembly. Children are given a special close-up look into the world of ballet.

During the Spring of 2020, City Ballet dancers and musicians will be performing a special presentation of “Beauty and the Beast” with its message of acceptance to area elementary schools.

If you are interested in having City Ballet come to your school, please contact: Jo Anne Emery at

Discover a Dancer

City Ballet’s education outreach program to disadvantaged children and youth at risk. This program offers a creative alternative to violence, gang association, substances abuse and leaving school for children whose family environment would probably never offer exposure to ballet.

Summer Education Programs

In an abundance of caution, City Ballet is cancelling the Summer Intensive, Adult Intensive and Master Classes for 2020.

These classes attract students from across the United States, not just San Diego. Students would spend multiple hours in the studio in back-to-back classes. Given recent COVID-19 developments, offering Summer Intensive, Adult Intensive and Master Classes would not be in keeping with City Ballet’s safety first precept. We will continue classes for local San Diego students in lieu of Summer Intensive.
