SF Ballet Principal Joins LDT Staff

It is with great pleasure that we announce Mr. Joan Boada has joined LDT’s staff, and will continue to perform with Laguna Ballet as an Artist in Residence. Prior to coming to LDT, he had celebrated 17 year career as a principal dancer for San Francisco Ballet. He will be coaching our Youth American Grand Prix Competition participants and teaching full time, including in the pre-professional program and open classes for adults. He has garnered international fame for his precise Vaganova technique and dramatic capabilities. With his vast experience comes a wealth of knowledge that Joan is able to pass on to our students. Laguna Dance Theatre has gained an invaluable asset with Joan’s passion to coach and mentor young students to reach their full potential, and we welcome him to our family.

Laguna Dance Theatre offers strong pre-professional ballet training, customized to the aspirations and possibilities of the individual student. Care is given to the developing physique of each dancer to forestall injury and maximize progress. Along with strong classical technique, artistry and expression, are emphasized throughout the training process.

In addition to ballet classes, LDT also offers the best in jazz, tap, hip-hop, lyrical, contemporary, musical theatre, pilates and zumba classes for dancers from age 3 to adult. The atmosphere is warm, friendly, and professional, and students quickly feel part of the LDT family.
