At Stanford University
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.

We're so excited to welcome the class of 2020 and other ballet dancers on campus! We'd love to answer any questions you have about Cardinal Ballet Company and continuing ballet at Stanford (send us an email or stop by our booth during the activities fair!). Our members come from a variety of backgrounds, some having been trained in small schools and others having danced in professional companies. Members are encouraged to take the Advanced Ballet class through Stanford's Dance Department. We put on two shows a year, Nutcracker in the Fall and Cardinal Dance Fusion in the Spring, and organize pointe and pas de deux workshops in the Spring after our last shows. We've danced at a variety of other venues, including Dance Marathon and Viennese Ball. Check back later for information about auditions in the fall.
