Founded in 1954 through the efforts and leadership of Barbara and Deane Crockett. Sacramento Ballet is now the leading ballet company in its region, offering extraordinary performances, an outstanding school of ballet, community education and engagement for all.
In 1988 Ron Cunningham was engaged as Artistic Director, and was joined by his wife Carinne Binda the following year. The two became Co-Artistic Directors in 1991. After 30 years and upon their retirement from Sacramento Ballet, Amy Seiwert, a former Sacramento Ballet Dancer and Choreographer, directed the company through the 2020 season.
Sacramento Ballet’s art spans a 67-year tradition, bringing joy while elevating and engaging audiences. SacBallet is devoted to helping promote vibrant engagement with the arts for everyone. For our participants, our artists, our scholarship students and our community: Sacramento Ballet is alive and well, dedicated to fulfilling the destiny of its artistry and joyfully filling the void this holiday season.
