Not a Dancer? Come Watch.

Watching a master class as a member of the audience offers an intimate, behind-the-scenes look at the rigor and craft of dance instruction at the same time it provides a deeper connection to the exhilarating art of ballet.

We can accommodate up to 75 observers, but please note: Observers must register in advance. Children eight through 14 must be accompanied by an adult. Unfortunately, children younger than eight years old and babies are not allowed. Photography and videography are strictly prohibited inside the SF Ballet building.


“I hope that they leave the class feeling like they’ve learned something, had fun, and got a good workout.”

Tina LeBlanc, SF Ballet School Faculty
