BRINGING THE ART OF TIMELESS TRADITION TO THE COMMUNITY
Temecula Ballet, formerly known as IVCBT, was formed to provide professional training and performance opportunities for aspiring young dancers. The company is committed to providing advanced instruction in ballet as an art form, and is eager to enrich the cultural life of our community. We hope to create a heightened sense of excitement and reward for those who join us.
Temecula Ballet's highly professional and experienced staff will help your child reach their personal best in dance and develop personal character skills like confidence, self-control, integrity, and work ethic based on biblical values. Each year, as a student of Temecula Ballet you will have the opportunity to perform in a minimum of two professionally staged full ballet productions, including our annual tradition of The Nutcracker Ballet.
The Vaganova Method is a ballet technique and training system created by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova. It is acknowledged all over the world as the foremost training syllabus of classical ballet. This extraordinary system develops knowledge of how one’s body should be used in order to dance not only with technique but also with expression.
Character dance is a specific subdivision of classical dance. It is the stylized representation of a traditional folk or national dance, mostly from European countries, and uses movements and music which have been adapted for the theater.
Character dance is integral to much of the classical ballet repertoire and is required for Ballet II-IV students.
Temecula Ballet is proud to offer a variety of other dance styles to enhance our students' versatility. Students can choose from jazz, lyrical and contemporary, jumps and turns, pas de deux (partnering), petite ballet, adult ballet classes, as well as Stretch and Conditioning Classes in Progressing Ballet Technique with a Certified PBT and Flexistretcher Conditioning Specialist.
