    Our Legacy

    Yvonne teaching

    Westside School of Ballet in Santa Monica is dedicated to excellence in training and the development of the student as an artist. Every year since the school’s founding by Yvonne Mounsey in 1967, its students have been awarded scholarships with major ballet company schools and summer programs.

    This achievement is a result of the exceptional training by teachers with broad experience performing with professional companies all over the world. An important part of student training is the study of the classics and the opportunity to perform.

    Alumni of Westside School of Ballet dance with many professional companies, including New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, San Francisco Ballet, Houston Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, Los Angeles Ballet, Sacramento Ballet and Kansas City Ballet.


    Project RELEVÉ gives you an opportunity to support the programs of Westside Ballet of Santa Monica, a pre-professional training company serving the Los Angeles ballet community for over 40 years.

    With support from the dance community and beyond, Westside Ballet is able to produce professional performances, expand its scholarship program, and build partnerships with numerous community organizations to advance the study and appreciation of ballet in Los Angeles.
