Peninsula Ballet Theater (PBT) is the second oldest continuously operating ballet company in the region, providing family-friendly ballet performances for more than 8,000 audience members. In 2010, PBT entered a long-term lease for a 30,000 square foot facility in downtown San Mateo to house its new ballet school, which will engage all ages with dance classes, performances, and summer camps. Renewed support would provide PBT with resources to underpin the organization during the early years of its Conservatory of Dance.
