Curious about life behind the curtain at San Francisco Ballet? Want to learn more about our art form from dance scholars, our dancers, ballet masters, and artists who work behind the scenes? Ballet 101 is our popular five-class program designed to harness the talent and knowledge of the staff and artists of SF Ballet, and share it with interested, committed adults in a studio and classroom setting.

The course includes a combination of lectures, discussions with Ballet Masters and Company dancers, facility tours, as well as one ballet technique class for beginners and a chance to learn a character or peasant dance from a full length ballet with former SF Ballet Company Soloist Sherri LeBlanc.

The 2014 course of Ballet 101 is sold out.
