Calling all dance enthusiasts! Our friends at are offering discounted tickets for dancers/enthusiasts to their upcoming show Bob Fosse's Dancin'! Use the PROMO code STUDIO at checkout for $29 tickets, valid for performances Apr 19-Apr 27!

A little bit about the show:

Bob Fosse’s Dancin’ is Fosse’s full-throated, full-bodied celebration of the art form he loved, practiced, and changed forever. His hit musical masterpiece is reimagined by director Wayne Cilento, who starred in the original Broadway production of Dancin’. Cilento transforms the show’s original vision for 21st-century audiences. Dancin’ brims with Fosse’s warmth, emotion, color, and endlessly influential style rarely seen in modern interpretations of his work. Featuring an eclectic score that spans a multitude of musical genres and an extraordinary cast of Broadway’s most accomplished dancers, Dancin’ delivers the quintessential Broadway experience for Fosse fans and first-timers alike. You’ve never seen Dancin’ like this.
Happy TUTU (2/22/22) day!

Thank you to our beautiful Snow Queen and King Trystan Merrick and Gould for a gorgeous Snow Pas De Deux to close out our first Act in The Nutcracker.

It is so exciting to see the artistry of professional dancers flooding the stage again ❤
We would like to extend our deepest appreciation for everyone involved in California Ballet's "The Nutcracker". Whether you follow this account and were a spectator, or you are a dancer--young & promising or a seasoned professional (like our beautiful Sugarplum Fairy & Cavalier ), who performed and left your heart on the stage, thank you.

From the bottoms of our hearts at California Ballet School, we would not have been able to put this show on if not for this wonderful group of parents, dancers, teachers, staff, theatre personnel--and the Ballet Foundation of San Diego for its sponsorship of course.

Gosh darnit, the show must go on. And go on it did.

Congratulations on a great show and we will see you for San Diego's Original Nutcracker next holiday season!

This weekend, The Nutcracker! ✨

A fisherman spotted her just east of the Faralon Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was so badly off, the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her…. a very dangerous proposition. One slap of the tail could kill a rescuer.
They worked for hours with curved knives and eventually freed her. When she was free, the divers say she swam in what seemed like joyous circles. She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, nudged them, and pushed gently, thanking them. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives.
The guy who cut the rope out of her mouth says her eye was following him the whole time, and he will never be the same.
May you be so fortunate to be surrounded by people who will help you get untangled from the things that are binding you.
And, may you always know the joy of giving and receiving gratitude 🙏
