ONCE UPON A BALLET

NCBC’s outreach programs center on performances of fairy tales and other familiar stories that resonate with children and the wider community. We offer deeply discounted performances for our county’s K-8 school children. In 2019, we offered free performance tickets to Snow White & Other Selected Works to both COTS and Mentor Me. This performance was supported in part by the County of Sonoma.

Our Once Upon a Ballet repertoire includes: Alphabet Ballet, The Tales of Beatrix Potter, Peter and the Wolf, Alice in Wonderland, Coppelia: The Toymaker’s Shop, Sleeping Beauty: Aurora’s Wedding, Snow White, The Wizard of Oz, Madeline Goes To The Ballet, and Madeline Goes to the Circus.
