Mendocino Ballet Company and School

The Mendocino Ballet was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1984 under the direction of Founder, Mary Knight Morris, with the focus to provide the highest quality professional dance and performance opportunities in Mendocino County and the surrounding areas. After her retirement, Trudy McCreanor, a former professional dancer and Founder/Director of Colorado West Ballet & Dance Theatre, was hired in July of 2001 as the new Artistic Director of the Mendocino Ballet where she designed a professional quality dance program with Classical Ballet as the foundation for the dance art forms. The focus of the newly formed school is to offer a high quality, professional dance program in a positive, non-competitive learning environment with an age-appropriate curriculum. Performance opportunities abound for students as well as the community and Mendocino Ballet Company members.
