San Diego Civic Youth Ballet (SDCYB) has held classes in Balboa Park since 1945, and was instrumental in passing a 1971 bond issue to rebuild the Casa del Prado building in Balboa Park and dedicate it to youth cultural activities. Our rich history as a classical ballet school has developed into a more holistic organization throughout the years to include education, performance, and community outreach. As a school, we provide students aged four through adult with affordable classical ballet instruction by a professional, experienced faculty. As an organization, we conduct weekly outreach programs at both our studios in Balboa Park and in the classrooms of San Diego primary schools.
In all facets of SDCYB, our mission is to provide the youth of the San Diego area with an opportunity to study, understand, and appreciate, through education and participation, the art of ballet; and to enrich the cultural life of the community.
