The young, talented dancers of Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre perform two of ballet's most lyrical works: Sleeping Beauty and Paquita. With a sumptuous score by Tchaikovsky, a fairy tale plot of the triumph of good over evil and classical courtly style, Sleeping Beauty is the ideal production for Marat Daukayev Ballet Theatre's accomplished student dancers. Paquita is Petipa's virtuosic 1881 ballet about a young girl who saves the life of a young French officer, who himself is the target of a Spanish governor who plots to have him killed. A much-loved ballet that showcases the talents of its soloists, Paquita's choreography includes the famous Grand Pas Classique, the Pas de Trois and the Children's Mazurka. Learn More

Having never seen any production of "The Nutcracker" ever in my life, I wasn't sure what to expect when my wife and I attended this particular production of "The Nutcracker." It turned out to be a very nice show! The production values were good and the performances were great. Don't be discouraged to see this particular production just because it's done by ballet students and not professionals. These kids are very well-trained and do a great job!
Westside Ballet Company’s production of The Nutcracker is a Southern California tradition spanning four decades. Tchaikovsky’s classic ballet is about a young girl, Clara, who is given a nutcracker for Christmas by her godfather, Herr Drosselmeyer. But this is no ordinary nutcracker as Clara learns that very night.
