SF Ballet School Director Patrick Armand leading class.




At SF Ballet, we are honored to work with a diverse group of community dance partners, both locally and around the world. Class with Community is a program designed for SF Ballet to share the joy of dance with the widest possible audiences while also striving to further our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion. Each Class with Community will feature the voice, perspective, and mission of our new or long-term community partners on SF Ballet’s social media, as well as through open ballet classes taught by SF Ballet School faculty. While these classes are free, a $15 donation is suggested and 100% of your donation will go to the partner organization. During summer 2020, SF Ballet hosted a series of classes with long-term partner organizations the International Association of Blacks in Dance and the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, and we look forward to hosting future classes with our new partner Heat Danceline and other partner organizations, to be announced. We can’t wait to see you in class this summer!
