SAN PEDRO- San Pedro City Ballet's The Nutcracker
is growing by leaps and bounds. This dance company has taken the
stage by storm with community involved dancers, friends, families
and a progressive approach to ballet & dance. We were contacted by
the ballet company when they premiered
a newly commissioned works in April 2008 by the Bradley team of
Patrick David & Cindy Bradley.
San Pedro City Ballet (SPCB) came into
existence in 1994 when these nationally recognized dancers and teachers, Cynthia
and Patrick David Bradley, decided it was the right time and place to form this
new ballet company and venture. What they discovered was a wealth of local
talent eager to embrace a professional stance and training in the classics, as
well as more progressive themes and styles.
Now a popular, annual event, The
Nutcracker is produced and staged at the Warner Grand Theatre in San Pedro. The
venue offers a classic setting of its own, original to the San Pedro climate and
culture. Audience attend concerts, dance and shows in this venue throughout the
San Pedro City Ballet under the direction
of the Bradleys focuses on original modern works for a variety of venues
throughout Southern California, and holds performance workshops throughout the
city of Los Angeles.
San Pedro City Ballet's mission is to
identify, train and promote a world-class pre-professional dance company from
the diverse population of the Los Angeles Harbor area that is founded in
classical works and traditions, and goes beyond to explore new contemporary and
original modern works, and to provide training to schools throughout Los Angeles
for arts education and after-school programs.
Like San Pedro itself, this dance company
is becoming one of the shining stars in a city that's growing into a cultural
mecca filled with entertainment and attractions while retaining its roots as one
of the nation's largest shipping ports.
