Dance. Move. Integrate. Engage.

SF Ballet’s current education programs for K–12 schools include in-school, before-school, and after-school dance residencies, professional development workshops for preK–12 educators, Student Matinee performances by SF Ballet dancers accompanied by the SF Ballet Orchestra, and pre-performance classroom visits through the Student Matinee Docent Program.
