Peninsula Youth Ballet was founded in 1979 to provide opportunities for serious young dancers to develop their ballet skills and expand their performance experience in a company setting. Peninsula Youth Ballet is a non-profit organization that offers a unique opportunity for young dancers and promotes the art of ballet in our community. Some of PYB’s previous productions have included Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid, Giselle, Coppelia, Paquita, Stars & Stripes, Peter and the Wolf, Graduation Ball and La La Bayadère. Current and former company members have performed with the American Ballet Theatre, Oakland Ballet, Smuin Ballet San Francisco, Colorado Ballet, Joffrey II, ODC/SF and Ballet San Jose Silicon Valley. Company alumni frequently return as guest performers.
