San Francisco Ballet in Ratmansky's Shostakovich Trilogy (© Erik Tomasson)
The San Francisco Ballet Center for Dance Education promotes lifelong learning and is committed to San Francisco Ballet's mission of sharing the joy of dance with the widest possible audience. SF Ballet offers a variety of ways for audiences to learn more about dance and to get up close and personal with Company artists.
Many of the Ballet's patrons and the general public enjoy hearing from known experts in the field as well as personal insights from Company dancers, choreographers, and guest artists who create the works onstage. Attending a moderated discussion, interactive lecture, or experiential workshop expressly designed for the adult community can often enrich the context and enjoyment of the dances observed.
