The Santa Clara Ballet has persevered to bring us the Annual Nutcracker since 1973 despite shrinking funding. Providing vital cultural programming, enriching the community and our young dancers and enhancing the profile of the City of Santa Clara, Santa Clara Ballet fills a void in the local education districts where both music and dance classes have been cut or reduced. Santa Clara Ballet provides young children a safe environment for artistic expression, as they learn dedication, discipline and perseverance by performing in a professional environment. Our fundraising efforts center on initiatives to ensure the future of our Nutcracker and to provide opportunities for children who would otherwise not have the means to learn ballet.
