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.


The dancers are working hard in rehearsal on various pieces to present at this year's Cardinal Dance Fusion, including new choreography by current Cardinal Ballet dancers (Jackson Jirard, Jessica Tam, Liana Yates and Stephanie Hsiang), new choreography by local artist Erin McNulty, new choreography by CBC alumni Ali McKeon, and traditional classical pieces.

Cardinal Dance Fusion!

Come see our annual spring show on April 3, 2015 at 8pm at Dinkelspiel Auditorium, featuring performances by Common Origins, Tap Th@t, Bent Spoon, Urban Styles, Kaorihiva, Shifterz, and Swingtime! Admission is free with SUID and $10 without.
