Inspire Dance Santa Barbara presents

Once Upon a Time

A Holiday Storybook Ballet

Produced by Sean Crawford

December 16, 2023

IDSB presents its 9th Holiday showcase at Center Stage Theater. Join our performing groups for a beautiful tale of Cinderella’s invitation to her Winter Ball to all her favorite characters from Wizard of Oz, Beauty and the Beast, and Sleeping Beauty. Her little mice helpers run into a few foiled invitations of some characters that weren’t really invited, such as the Evil Stepsisters, Wicked Witch, Gaston, and the Cheshire Cat, which confuses everyone. These sweet characters are sure to keep you dancing in your seats, laughing, and rooting for them to make the most anticipated Holiday event in all the fairytale kingdoms!

There are no social distancing requirements in place for seating. There are no vaccine or testing requirements at this time. Masks are encouraged but not required. We are continuing our mitigation efforts. The HVAC system for the theater is set to bring in 100% fresh air. We are using CDC-recommended MERV-13 filters, the air is turned over 7.35 times an hour, and we also have portable HEPA air purifiers and our generous use of hand sanitizer. (Thank you to the Santa Barbara Foundation!) All our staff are fully vaccinated, and performers are either vaccinated or tested negative before performing.

You can use either e-tickets, print-at-home tickets, or request Will Call tickets to be waiting for you at the Box Office. If you have any questions, please email Executive Director Teri Ball at

Thank you to everyone in the community who supported us through this prolonged intermission. We would not still be here without your support.
