What We Do

New West Ballet Foundation provides arts enrichment and education for the North San Diego County community through engaging performances and community outreach that preserve and advance the genuine classical ballet experience.

How We Do It

Nutcracker

The Foundation is very pleased to produce an annual production of The Nutcracker, which features over 80 performers ranging from age 4 to 70! The ballet is performed at the beautiful Poway Center for the Performing Arts over the Thanksgiving weekend, with 3-full length performances, and one hour-long abridged version. Our abridged version is also a sensory-friendly performance, geared towards young families and anyone with sensory sensitivities.

Outreach

Throughout the year, we take our dancers on the road and perform excerpts from our ballets at local festivals and community fairs. In doing so, we bring ballet to our local community, sharing this beautiful art with individuals who may otherwise not be able to experience it. Additionally, the Foundation works to offer scholarships to several of the studio's students. In the 2019 - 2020 school year, scholarships total just over $9,000.

New West Ballet and New West Ballet’s Nutcracker have been an integral part of my life since I was 13 years old. My years with New West Ballet taught me discipline, commitment, teamwork, trust, and perseverance. Being in the studio and on the stage were some of the most challenging, frustrating, but rewarding times in my life. From a petite snowflake to Clara’s Mother, my time with New West Ballet has given me some of my most treasured memories.
