To celebrate SDCYB's 75th Anniversary Season in 2020, Artistic Director Danika Pramik-Holdaway decided to create a brand new production for our dancers and audiences, the SDCYB Premiere of the classic ballet THE FIREBIRD, which featured over 150 student dancers before it had to be cancelled.
April 3rd was supposed to be Opening Night.
As we are far from our final bow, the organization as a whole has worked too hard to let THE FIREBIRD production not be experienced by all of you. And while we know it is not the same as being at the Casa del Prado Theater, we hope the special video we have put together (see YouTube link below) still provides our community with an opportunity to celebrate the hard work and dedication of our student dancers, while also sharing in the communal experience of learning (or revisiting) this magical story through ballet, all from the safety of your homes.
As we work to get back on our toes and continue to celebrate our milestone 75th Anniversary in Balboa Park, we have established an SDCYB FIREBIRD RELIEF FUND to support our efforts. Your donations will ensure San Diego Civic Youth Ballet’s future, and offer immediate support for the organization during this challenging time. We would also like to thank those of you who have already donated your ticket purchases back to us.
Whether or not you are able to donate at this time, it would mean the world to us if you SHARED THIS CAMPAIGN far and wide to all of your friends and families!

As we wait to take our places once again in the Casa del Prado, we hope this version of the production (as told through the rehearsal process) will provide a bit of beauty and grace in a world that often seems chaotic, and we hope you will consider making a gift to our fund today.
