The Paso Robles Chamber Ballet Company (PRCB) is now in its 17h season under the direction of Cheryle Armstrong.  The PRCB is the only pre professional ballet program in North San Luis Obispo County and is under the non-profit umbrella of the North County Dance and Performing Arts Foundation.     

They provide classical ballet training in a supportive and non-competitive environment.  Their program provides an extensive and challenging curriculum that builds a solid foundation and encourages each dancer to achieve their personal goals and develop their natural talents.

The PRCB program offers many educational and performing opportunities.  These include master classes, choreography and workshops with ballet professionals. Company dancers are provided opportunities to be partnered with professional dancers in a variety of productions including the annual production of The Nutcracker Ballet and our repertory show “EPIC"Emerging Performers in concert” which have both become community favorites.

The PRCB repertoire also includes original contemporary ballets such as Let It Be, Koo Sa Moo, Ishtar and Creon, as well as the classic tales of Cinderella and Alice in Wonderland.

Their Youth Outreach Program continues to inspire and educate students of all ages throughout the community.  This program offers educational school assemblies as well as “Open Dress Rehearsals” with free admission to all of the annual performances.

Many PRCB Company members have been awarded summer and yearlong scholarships at some of the nation’s top schools and professional ballet programs including Julliard, ABT, Joffrey, LINES, Kirov, Ballet Austin, San Jose Ballet, Ballet West and San Francisco Ballet.

The PRCB Company is proud to be a member of The Regional Dance of America (RDA) and looks forward to joining ballet companies from throughout the country at the national festival in Phoenix.
