SCHOOL & EDUCATION
SAN FRANCISCO BALLET SCHOOL AND EDUCATION PROGRAMS
The dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer may begin with Nutcracker; however, the real work starts here.
From intensive youth ballet training programs to classes for adults, and dance education partnerships with SFUSD schools and community organizations, SF Ballet seeks to share the joy of dance with the broadest audience possible. Our education programs and the SF Ballet School strive to provide equitable access to high quality dance education for students of all ages and abilities.
SF Ballet School
The dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer may begin with Nutcracker. But the real work starts here, at the SF Ballet School.
SF Ballet School students who wish to pursue a career as a professional ballet dancer are hand-picked by the School Director.
The School offers several options for children and youth of all ages to have fun, improve technique, or participate in our pre-professional summer program.
SF Ballet partners with San Francisco Unified School District to provide free an array dance education programs to PK–12 school children and their teachers.
Youth & Family
At SF Ballet we’re passionate about sharing our love of ballet with children, teens, and families in the SF Bay Area community through workshops, dance classes with community partners, and community engagement events.
We believe ballet is for everyone. Adult ballet classes at SF Ballet School offer a great workout, grounded in classical technique, and are led by Company and School faculty members.
