Welcome to the Mendocino Ballet

The Mendocino Ballet offers a high quality dance program in a safe, positive, and non-competitive learning environment with an age-appropriate curriculum for all ages and levels.  Incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1985, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality professional dance instruction and performance opportunities in Mendocino County and surrounding areas.

Performance opportunities abound for students as well as community members.  With year-round classes for all ages from 3 through adult, we have a class for everyone. An active Outreach Program introduces dance history and the many benefits of dance and movement to school children and teachers from throughout the county.  Our instructors bring years of training, education and professional experience to the classroom. 

A spring “Season of Dance” showcases Classical and Contemporary Ballet, Jazz, and Tap as well as children's story ballets for School Tour and public performances.  “The Nutcracker” is performed each December and showcases local dance students and adult performers alongside members of the Mendocino Ballet Company.

Simply put, we provide the most comprehensive, professional dance program in the area with an emphasis on a positive experience for YOU and YOUR child!
