State Street Ballet is committed to core values of inclusion, open-mindedness, and our mission to make the arts accessible for all. Our innovative programming includes a variety of livestreams, socially-distanced performances, and outdoor activities, providing our dancers the space to move, create, interpret, evolve, and connect with our beloved audience. Thank you for your dedication to our organization. In this era of striking uncertainty, we are stronger than ever with your support.
Our celebrated Studio Series returns, but in a digital format! EVENINGS this year will be a collection of new dance films, shot in various locations around Santa Barbara. Tune in to see our dancers exploring their talents both onscreen and off. PLUS order your dinner from Events by Rincon and have the perfect evening at home!
