Training for a World Stage
Sixty-five percent of dancers in the ranks of San Francisco Ballet received their training at the San Francisco Ballet School. Students have also gone on to dance with such companies as National Ballet of Canada, Dutch National Ballet, New York City Ballet, Boston Ballet, Houston Ballet, The Joffrey Ballet, Canada's Royal Winnipeg Ballet, Miami City Ballet, and Cincinnati Ballet, among others.
“The Trainee Program allowed us to bond like a family. There were many great experiences that we shared, including over 30 performances, being pushed to our maximum potential, and spending holidays together, and more—these will always be great memories and a vital part of my life experience.”

“I was seven years old when I was first introduced to dance through Dance in Schools and Communities while attending SF’s Argonne Elementary School… By Level 8, the studios became our second home for all of us.”
