In an era of striking uncertainty, State Street Ballet remains committed to our core values of inclusion and open-mindedness, and our mission to make the arts accessible for all. We are eagerly planning an innovative variety of live-streams, socially-distanced performances, and outdoor activities. Our goal is to provide our dancers the space to move, create, interpret, and evolve, and to connect with our beloved audience members in ways that we are all missing. We thank you for your dedication to our organization and we invite you to stay tuned for special announcements and performance news.
Avoiding a total shutdown, State Street Ballet announces a modified season of activities during the pandemic, focusing on visibility in the Santa Barbara community and relevancy in the global dance network. In-studio shows, livestreams, and outdoor performances round out this updated plan of action, with the goal of bringing joy and inspiration to audiences everywhere.Learn More...
