Marin Ballet

Leona Norman founded Marin Ballet, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013, holding classes in her own home. As an internationally trained and acclaimed dancer, Norman hoped to bring the same high-quality teaching she experienced abroad to dancers of all ages in Northern California. At her studio, which has expanded greatly to fill a bright and spacious facility in San Rafael's historic Dominican neighborhood, the current staff pursues the same mission of high-quality dance education under the tutelage of artistic director Cynthia Lucas, who trained under Norman.

The studio now welcomes around 100 adults and 300 youths per year to hone their fancy footwork with a schedule of 75 classes per week. Ballet makes up the majority of Marin’s curriculum, with training programs that start wee ones as young as 3 years old on the path to learning advanced techniques and pointe skills into adulthood. To balance out ballet-heavy schedules, intermediate and advanced students can enlist in infusion training in the summer, which covers choreography and mime classes and such styles as contemporary dance, Pilates, jazz, flamenco, and West African dance.
