Founder and Artistic Director, Suzànne Lundberg moved to Stockton spring 2015 to establish a professional school of classical ballet for students to receive the training necessary to pursue careers in dance, college scholarships, to create a performing company and most importantly - to establish youth outreach programs in the midwon and downtown areas. Nearly single-handedly installing  sprung floors and mirrors, Pacific Ballet's doors opened for class on the Miracle Mile summer 2015. Right on schedule, Pacific Ballet made its move downtown fall 2018 and Pacific Ballet Company premiered at the Fox.
