The Blankenship Ballet Company has moved from its established home in Venice to downtown Los Angeles.

The ballet company relocated to find more space to accommodate the standing-room-only crowds that were attending its now well-known Cuban Dance Exhibitions, company staff said.

Blankenship Ballet not only produced dance events but also reached out to other artistic areas of Venice to include music, poetry, comedy, drama and art. The Cuban Ballet Exhibitions that were produced at the ballroom at Brooks Avenue and Main Street were wildly successful and the audience attendance far outweighed the size of the space.

The group is kicking off its season in the new location with a Cuban Ballet & Dance Extravaganza scheduled Saturday, May 30th at the Vibiana, 210 S. Main Street, Los Angeles. Information,

“Because of the wonderful relationships we nurtured in Venice, and the magnificent creativity of Venetians, we are still honored to call ourselves The Blankenship Ballet Company of Venice and we do intend to return at some point in the future.” impresario Mark Blankenship said.

The Blankenship Ballet Company of—Venice—is thrilled to be able to continue its artistic endeavors at Vibiana, a venue that was originally constructed in 1876 and carefully renovated and restored to its original beauty, as well as repurposed for use as an arts, performances, and events complex.
