Enriching the cultural life of the community we call home.

At SF Ballet we’re passionate about sharing our love of ballet with our neighbors in the San Francisco Bay Area community. We’re here to spark creativity and inspire imagination in our school outreach efforts, our youth and family programs, our partnerships and in our annual free performances.

Upcoming Events

Youth Programs

Our youth programs get children up and moving as we explore choreography, music, and characters in a ballet. Some of our programs are open to the public like our Let's Dance Family Workshops. Others, like Dance Camp, are a community partnership—Dance Camp is offered in conjunction with the Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco.

School Programs & Resources

When arts education was cut from public schools, SF Ballet stepped in with a program called Dance in Schools and Communities (DISC) which has since become a model for programs at ballet companies across the country. Student Matinees introduce young ones to ballet and we also provide resources for teachers.
