Guests will enjoy a performance by the California Ballet Company and social time.

California Ballet Company (CBC) presents Beyond the Barre: Beer and Ballet at the California Ballet Center in Kearny Mesa, located at 4819 Ronson Court, San Diego, CA 92111. At 8 p.m., Friday, May 21, a gourmet food truck will provide refreshments. At 1 p.m., Sunday, May 22, light snacks will be offered and at 5:30 p.m., a gourmet food truck will be on site.

Attendees will enjoy a casual setting where they can enjoy local craft beers before, during and after an intimate, low-tech performance debuting new works. Audience members can grab a beer with a dancer following the performance in a rare chance to get to know the artists off the stage.

The performance program will include brand new works by local choreographers Jared Nelson, Trystan Merrick, and Jeremy Zapanta alongside classical repertoire such as excerpts from “Don Quixote” and “Swan Lake.” The mixed program is a visual representation of the company’s mission to preserve the classics while pioneering new works.

CBC dedicates part of each season to encouraging and developing new works with the annual production of “Beyond the Barre” so that: artists explore new ideas, audiences see dance as an evolving art, we stay current with global trends, local artists have opportunities to show their work.

Cost is $30 for reserved seating; $20 general admission. Guests must be six-years of age and older to attend.

Tickets may be purchased at or (858) 560-6741
