Thank you to NBC for covering our "Sensory Friendly Dress Rehearsal" for Cinderella. It was a wonderful time and such a warming feeling to see these children smiling and delighting in something typically off-limits to them. We are proud to continue making ballet accessible to our Silicon Valley community.
It’s something many of us take for granted, the ability to simply visit the theater and take in a performance. For some, it’s a far more daunting task. Recently, Ballet San Jose found a way to make that trip...

During his solo, Kopecky stood alone on the stage during intermission, looking out at the audience. “People were still talking and coming in and out. I liked it because I was able to do whatever I wanted to. I’ve never had a chance to improvise like that before. I was able to really let go. I was, as dancers say, ‘able to leave it all on the stage.'”

This fall, we're introducing two new classes, Baby Steps and Dance With Me! Baby Steps, for children 1-2 years old and their caregivers, stimulates development in a creative and social atmosphere, utilizing music and movement to improve muscle strength, balance and coordination. Dance with Me will be a class for 2-3 year olds and their caregivers. With the help and active presence of their caregiver, children ages 2-3 will be guided through developmentally appropriate activities that build large motor skills, coordination and balance as they discover and explore the world.

Age and developmentally appropriate open-enrollment classes are available for everyone, and registration is open now for Summer and Fall Classes. Popular classes fill up, so get ahead of the rush and register today! balletsj.org/sc_primary_division.html
