Introduce your students to the joy and wonder of dance by joining San Francisco Ballet for one of our Student Matinee performances. Designed especially for school groups in grades 2-12, these educational performances provide students an engaging introduction to classical and contemporary ballet along with a behind-the-scenes look at what it takes to stage a ballet performance. Our Student Matinees are a wonderful way to expose students to the transformative power of creativity through the performing arts.
Each educational 75-minute interactive program includes:
Performances take place at the historic War Memorial Opera House at the corner of Van Ness Avenue and Grove Street in San Francisco. Public transportation via Muni and BART is convenient, and parking is available nearby.
Make sure your students get the most out of their experience—study guides and other resources are available online at sfballet.org/studyguides. For each program, you’ll find standards-based activities that challenge students to think deeply and critically about the performance and about the artistic process. 2017 Season Study Guides available in January 2017.
