Art Pratt Foundation of Old Mission Rotary presented a grant benefiting the San Diego Civic Youth Ballet (SDCYB).

San Diego Civic Youth Ballet was founded in 1945 and has been the resident ballet school in Balboa Park ever since. In addition to offering high-quality, affordable, year-round training in the Casa del Prado studios, SDCYB produces three major productions at the Casa del Prado Theater each year: a full-length spring ballet, Fairy Tales in the Park each summer (which benefits the Scholarship Program) and the classic holiday production of The Nutcracker. There is also an annual Spring Showcase of the school and the SDCYB Performance Ensemble (which is comprised of the highest-level dancers) performs at special events throughout the community. 

SDCYB Development Manager, Christine de Pagter accepted the funds and announced that they would be using the $5000 grant presented on November 16th for furniture and dancing equipment.
