This is a good company that presents interesting programs. Only thing lacking is more audience.

Diablo Ballet is always good, creative and different. The ballet to the music of the Diablo Ballet Jazz Orchestra was especially entertaining.

Very disappointed. In one word - poor. The dancers are fine, but zero choreography, practically no sets, mostly one couple at a time was dancing. The "good" thing it was very short. The first act ran literally for 25 min. Definitely not worth the...continued
