About

Cardinal Ballet Company (CBC) is Stanford’s first and only ballet company. Founded in 1993 and composed entirely of students, CBC is home to dancers from diverse backgrounds and training ranging from classical to contemporary.

In addition to our 2 major full-length productions every year (the Nutcracker in the fall and a second full-length ballet in the spring), we also offer opportunities for student choreography in various forms.

Our mission is to bring dancers together who love performing and share our art with the community.
