Mission & Programs

Our Mission

SF Ballet’s mission is to share our joy of dance with the widest possible audience, both locally and around the world, and to provide the highest caliber of dance training in our School.

We seek to enhance our position as one of the world’s finest dance companies through our vitality, innovation, and diversity, and through our uncompromising commitment to artistic excellence based in the classical ballet tradition.


Enjoy favorites like Don Quixote and The Sleeping Beauty and experience the thrill of new work in a season that features two world premieres by Liam Scarlett and Yuri Possokhov as well as the SF Ballet premiere of Benjamin Millepied's Appassionata. Lose yourself. Be enchanted. Join us today.
