Outreach & Education

San Francisco Ballet is dedicated to sharing our joy of dance with the broadest possible audience in our community and around the globe. We value the dancer in everyone.

Over 25,000 people participate in our education and community programs annually, from school children, teachers, seniors, and Bay Area families to fellow artists, volunteers, hospitals, and the general public. We hope these programs provide introduction, enrichment, and opportunity for anyone to explore dance as a powerful and important cultural art form.
