ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO BALLET SCHOOL

The dream of becoming a professional ballet dancer may begin with Nutcracker. But the real work starts here, at San Francisco Ballet School.

SF Ballet School offers a challenging curriculum, taught by faculty members drawn from the ranks of San Francisco Ballet and companies around the world. The School benefits from its close relationship with the Company. In fact, the School is a fundamental part of the institution—65% of the Company’s dancers trained in SF Ballet School. We emphasize strong classical technique, a flow of movement and athleticism that suggests a sense of energy, freedom, and joy. This style—which reflects the kind of dancing favored by SF Ballet—adapts to meet the demands of any choreographer, any company, and any type of movement.
