Ballet Classes

Find the class that's right for you.

Whether you want to get in shape or learn more about the art form, we offer classes for everyone through the San Francisco Ballet School. Students of all ages are taught by dancers who held careers performing with professional ballet companies, including our own. For the unitiaited, we offer great training and a supportive and fun environment for learning. For the ballet fan, we also offer the opportunity to watch the next generation of professionals take class. We hope you'll join us.


Pre-Ballet classes at San Francisco Ballet School introduce young children to the fundamentals of classical ballet, focusing on proper body alignment, basic ballet technique and terminology, and musicality. But as a part of the SF Ballet School family, your energetic young child will also learn much more than ballet. Exposure to dance reinforces important life skills like creativity, discipline and team participation—all in a safe, fun, family environment.
