SUMMER BALLET CLASSES

SF Ballet School
455 Franklin Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

BASIC INFORMATION

  • No audition is required
  • All tuition is non-refundable and non-transferable

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, your young child will learn much more than ballet. Exposure to dance reinforces important life skills like creativity, discipline, and team participation—all in a safe, fun, nurturing environment.
