Ballet Insights: SF Ballet 2018 Season

How did American Ballet get its start? Was SF Ballet really the first ballet company in America? And what caused the dance boom? Join us for an interactive three-session seminar to find the answers to these questions and many more. From Anna Pavlova to Lew Christensen to George Balanchine, learn about how ballet became an American art. 

Join San Francisco Ballet for what San Francisco Chronicle calls, "the most stylish night of the year." At the SF Ballet ENCORE! Opening Night Gala, you will enjoy an intricately-planned evening beginning with a cocktail buffet in San Francisco City Hall’s South Light Court and a one-night-only gala performance at the War Memorial Opera House. Following the performance, the glamorous After Party at City Hall features live music, an open bar, late-night fare, and, of course, dancing.
