Cardinal Ballet Company (CBC) is an enthusiastic group of classically-trained dancers who love to perform. Founded in 1993 by Julia Ball-Dugan and Jennifer Mott and formerly known as Stanford Ballet, the group is Stanford University’s first ballet company. CBC is committed to enhancing the Stanford community by encouraging students to participate in or attend dance performances.


Cardinal Ballet Company will be continuing its annual tradition of performing excerpts from the Nutcracker! Mark your calendars for Saturday, December 5th at Dinkelspiel Auditorium.
