BRAVO Stays Busy

BRAVO Stays Busy

SF Ballet's Fantastic Group of Superhero Volunteers

Energized by their enthusiasm for dance, BRAVO makes up an indispensable part of the work force at SF Ballet. Their mission is to help the Company in every aspect of its operations by offering administrative assistance, tabling events promoting the Company, and chaperoning our youngest dancers during performances. The busiest time of year is during Nutcracker. There's no end to the help they provide! Scheduling nearly 45 volunteers to chaperone hundreds of kids backstage for each performance, BRAVO donates on average 3,500 volunteer hours by the time we wrap up Nutcracker by the end of December.

BRAVO is a fun group who enjoys their time in the Opera House, and as you'll see outside the Opera House as well.
