The Oakland Ballet Company was founded in 1965 by Ronn Guidi, who served as artistic director until 2000. Guidi was succeeded by Karen Brown, who in turn was succeeded by Graham Lustig in 2010. Guidi brought renown to the company with revivals of Ballets Russes ballets and American ballet classics, and with the creation of new works.

The collection contains flyers, programs and posters for individual productions, as well as season announcements and subscriber solicitations, press releases, newsletters, and other material. The collection also includes color slides and DVDs of ballet performances.
