Carol Guidry

The Santa Clarita Ballet Company was founded in 1995 as a performing outlet for advanced ballet students. A partnership with the Santa Clarita Ballet Academy gives students an opportunity to perform with professional guest artists and provides the community with quality, semi-professional ballet theater. The Company makes its home at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at College of the Canyons providing the community with three performances a year with a June production, a September production and an annual performance of The Nutcracker in December.

 

The Santa Clarita Ballet Company, Inc is a 501(c)(3) Nonprofit Corporation.

 

Artistic Mission

 

SCBC was founded with a two-fold mission:

 • To encourage the artistic development of local ballet talent by providing advanced training and the opportunity to perform with professional guest artists.

 

 • To enrich the cultural life of the community by providing a varied repertoire of affordable classical ballet performances that feature both talented local artists and professional guest artists, and are of a high artistic caliber.

 

SCBC History

 

Building on a strong training program, Santa Clarita Ballet Company formed in 1995. In less than ten years, SCBC saw its audience grow from an initial 700 to 6,400 annual attendees. The company’s repertory has grown to seven works including four full-length ballets. In December 2004, SCBC began presenting The Nutcracker, which has become a local holiday tradition, at the Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center on the College of the Canyons campus. This move has afforded us greater visibility in the community and positioned us to fulfill our long-term goal of becoming a viable full-time professional dance company.

“Ballet is a paradox. It is the pursuit of an illusory state of perfection where one becomes intimately acquainted with one’s imperfections. But, with nurturing guidance, the transcending of perceived limitations becomes a journey towards embracing the whole self. This is where artistry begins. The Santa Clarita Ballet trains dancers to value their bodies not just as tools but as equal partners to their intellect.”
