SUMMER BALLET CLASSES

SUMMER BALLET CLASSES

Continue your ballet training this summer

All classes are taught by San Francisco Ballet faculty in our studios with live accompaniment. Pre-ballet classes are available for ages 4–7 on Saturdays, and ages 8–13 on weekdays.

Summer Pre-Ballet Classes: Ages 4–7

The joy of ballet begins with Pre-Ballet classes at San Francisco Ballet School. We introduce young children to the fundamentals of classical ballet, focusing on proper body alignment, basic ballet technique and terminology, and musicality. As part of the SF Ballet School family, energetic young children learn much more than ballet. Exposure to dance reinforces important life skills like creativity, discipline, and team participation—all in a safe, fun, and nurturing environment. Children do not need to have any previous ballet experience and no audition is required. Enrollment is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
