Deliver original and unique works of dance to ballet enthusiasts and to those that have yet to discover the art of dance, while providing a nurturing, challenging and creative environment that enables dancers to artistically thrive.

Redondo Ballet: A Level of Excellence


We will build our foundation on works of unparalleled excellence, rooted in the classical tradition with a conscious commitment to create distinctive, innovative works of art.  We will instill in each dancer, with our Ballet in a Box Program, the importance of outreach and philanthropic endeavors.


Dance has the power to facilitate emotion, to tell a story…to change a life.

Redondo Ballet is a passionate advocate for dancers in the training and pursuit of a classical dance education whereby empowerment exudes from every dancer as they delve into the philosophies of a classical education that are imparted upon them on a daily basis, giving the dancers the ability and power to craft a narrative that creates a connection with an audience that ranges from the earnest realities of life to the heights of frivolity.

We attain our vision of outreach and philanthropic endeavors with the Ballet in a Box program.


The Redondo Ballet Company 501(c)(3) was formed in 2014 with a vision to create a home for the art of dance in the South Bay. This was a long-held dream of Founder, Francesca Stern.

RBC’s debut performance of The Snow Queen, represented the realization of Francesca’s and Co-Director Donna Perkins’ dream, and the dawning of ballet in the South Bay.

Experienced and committed dancers are invited to audition to be a part of this elite group. Auditions take place in June. Younger dancers may support Redondo Ballet by joining Redondo Ballet Apprentice Company.
