Peninsula Ballet Theatre is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate inclusion, diversity, equity, and open access and are committed to creating this environment for all.

Peninsula Ballet Theatre inspires passion and creates joy with live productions through a collaboration of dedicated artists, artisans and supporters. Founded in 1967 by Dick Ford and Richard Gibson as the non-profit performing vehicle for students in their ballet school, then Peninsula Ballet School, the first professional dancers trained outside the school were hired in 1971 to form a separate permanent company.  PBT is the Bay Area's second oldest professional ballet company in continuous operation. Joining as artistic director in 2017, Greg Amato has cultivated a company of professional dancers that performs a full season of wide-ranging repertory. Continuing its 54-year tradition as the artistic and cultural hub of San Mateo County, Peninsula Hip Hop Productions was added in 2016 under the artistic direction of Stuck Sanders and Peninsula Broadway Productions, directed by Gary Ferguson, makes its debut with the 2021-22 season.
