The Southern California Dance Theatre

As a community organization, we provide many opportunities with its main focus on dance performances and arts education. Besides dance instruction, the Southern California Dance Theatre seeks to foster both team-spirit and provide individual roles that utilize each person’s strengths and talents. Furthermore, the company provides a springboard for professional performers to expand their craft by developing leadership opportunities through choreography, coaching, and back-stage skills.

By developing both arts and life-skill opportunities, the Southern California Dance Theatre seeks to nurture long-lasting relationships among its members by creating original works that reflect the diversity of our community, in addition to preserving the rich culture of the great classical ballet productions.
