Kroc Theatre, located at 6611 University Avenue, San Diego, CA 92115.

This is a story about a young mermaid dreaming of a world other than the one they live in. This timeless tale reminds us of what is possible when we pursue our dreams with unwavering determination. Told through the music and choreography of the classical ballet, “Le Corsaire,” BalletCenter Studios “The Little Mermaid Ballet”is not an event to be missed by fans of classical dance or fairy tales.  

Discover a world under the sea, alive with vibrant backdrops and an array of beautiful costumes. Follow the little mermaid as she pursues her dream of a life on land accompanied by her favorite little fish and crabby guardian. Her only path to her new life is through the dangerous magic of the Sea Witch, but there is nothing the Witch won’t do to capture the little mermaid’s magical voice and add her to the collection of lost souls. Will the love of a prince break the spell or will this tight group of friends have to take matters into their own hands? Join us at the Joan B. Kroc theater for this exciting two-act ballet.

Committed to delivering comprehensive ballet education, the long-established community studio welcomes students of all backgrounds, ages, and skill levels. Three times a year, these aspiring dancers are given the unique opportunity to demonstrate their progress and new skills through on-stage performances in front of a live audience. These events not only showcase their hard work but also immerse them in the entire process of live theater, from rehearsals to the final curtain call.

This production acts as the foundation for students who will attend summer programs in the following months of June, July, and August. It provides a pivotal checkpoint and a chance to hone their skills in preparation for a rigorous summer of dance, where they often train for five to nine hours a day, six days a week. These programs can lead to traineeships and apprenticeships with students being accepted into prestigious ballet centers, including Royal Ballet School, Dutch National Ballet, English National Ballet, San Francisco Ballet School, School of American Ballet, Boston Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Pacific Northwest Ballet, Washington Ballet, Houston Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, Philadelphia Ballet, Ballet West, Colorado Ballet, Kaatsbaan, and others.
