About Redondo Ballet

Dance 1 is proud to be home to Redondo Ballet, formed in 2014 with a vision to create a home for the art of dance in the South Bay.  Redondo Ballet participates in approximately 20 performances per year at community events, festivals and parades, as well as regional and national dance competitions. Redondo Ballet also has the unique experience of witnessing full-scale ballets grow from the ground up in two original productions.  It is our hope that the Redondo Ballet Company is something that dancers will aspire to be a part of, and something that both Dance 1 and our community can be proud of.  It is our goal that each dancer grows to his or her full potential, and that being a member of Redondo Ballet supports a love of dance and contributes to a sense of strength and pride.
