About us

Delta Children’s Ballet Theatre DBA Black Diamond Ballet is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization (FEIN# 68-0222952)

Black Diamond Ballet Theatre was created in 2009 by founders Michael Lowe and Sharon Sobel Idul upon realizing the need for a professional ballet company in East Contra Costa County. BDBT is the first professional ballet company to proudly call the historic Pittsburg Creative Arts Building home. In 2009, the company debuted with its rendition of theNutcracker, followed by Lowe’s excerpts from Romeo and Juliet in May 2010.

In 2012, after a 2-year hiatus for theater renovations, Idul returned as Artistic Director, and BDBT took to the stage once again in the beautifully transformed 1,850-seat theater, in its full-length production of the Nutcracker. This year's show features professional dancers from Pittsburg to the South Bay, across North America to Europe, accompanied by nearly 40 locally trained student ballet trainees from all over the Bay Area.

The Black Diamond Ballet Theatre remains dedicated to the community through its outreach programs with local elementary schools, public appearances, fundraising events, and our local retirement and senior communities.
