About the Ticket Supplier: Alameda Civic Ballet

Alameda Civic Ballet was founded in February 2003 and achieved non-profit 501(3)c status as a charitable organization in November of 2004. The goal of the company is to create and present high quality community accessible ballet performances, while providing young dancers with valuable experience performing alongside professional dancers.

The Alameda Civic Ballet made its debut performance in June 200 at Kofman Auditorium in Alameda with Degas Dancers, a work inspired by the paintings of the famous French painter Edgar Degas. Alameda Civic Ballet was also invited to perform Degas Dancers in November 2003 at the Palace of the Legion of Honor in San Francisco, in conjunction with The Degas Sculpture Exhibit. In December 2003, the company presented it's premier performance of Act 2 Nutcracker Excerpts. In February 2004, the company was honored to be part of the Alameda Education Foundation Mardi Gras Gala and won rave reviews for it's Festive Les Bons Temps (The Good Times) set to the infectious music Of the Bay Area's Zydeco/Cajun King, Tom Rigney. The company has presented Spring performances in 2004 and 2005, featuring an eclectic mix of Ballet, Modern, Salsa, Can Can, and contemporary pieces. In December 2004, the company performed Nutcracker Highlights at five sold-out shows.

The company has recently been informed that it has been nominated for the Alameda Chamber of Commerce 2005 Business Awards for it's contribution to the arts.
