  • HISTORY OF SAN JOSE' DANCE THEATRE

  • The organization was founded in 1954 as Paul E. Curtis Jr.’s Los Gatos Academy of Dance and the West Valley Ballet Foundation. The name was later changed to San José Dance Theatre in 1966 and incorporated as a nonprofit educational organization in 1968. 

  • The organization delighted local audiences over the past four decades with performances including Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. San José Dance Theatre produced San José’s first complete version of Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker" in 1966 under the direction of founding directors and choreographers, Paul E. Curtis, Jr. and Shawn Stuart. It is the second longest running production in the Bay Area. Only San Francisco Ballet’s has a longer run. By open audition, dancers from over  20 schools in the area join professional dancers for parts in "The Nutcracker". This unique combination of local, regional and  national performers makes this production a tradition that is truly a celebration of our world community.
