Celebrate the 30th anniversary of Orange County’s premiere resident ballet company with an exciting gala performance that brings world-renowned ballet artists and inspired young protégés together on one stage.

The annual “Gala of the Stars” is a unique event that boasts an incredible roster of guest artists from internationally-acclaimed ballet companies. The professional talent is complemented by local and international young artists who have been selected as standout performers by visiting artistic directors of the Southland Ballet Academy International Summer Intensive and the prestigious Youth America Grand Prix. The often sold-out performance is a rare opportunity for Orange County audiences to see dancers from different companies in a combined program that celebrates the continued art and passion of ballet.

As Festival Ballet Theatre honors their 30th anniversary, they continue to uphold their commitment to bringing the best of professional dance to their Orange County home. The “Gala” presents an unprecedented opportunity to see future stars and current stars connecting through the same language of dance.
