CREATE OUR FUTURE WITH US

Nestled in the heart of the city, San Francisco Ballet embodies the beloved qualities that characterize the Bay Area: resilience, artistic passion, and pushing the creative envelope. From our introduction of Nutcracker into the common vernacular as a holiday tradition more than 75 years ago, to our spectacular reimagining of what ballet can be, SF Ballet is deeply committed to forging bold new paths.

UPDATED DONOR BENEFITS: VIRTUAL & SOCIAL DISTANCING

Our donors are important to us, especially right now. We have refreshed our donor benefit offerings to ensure we steward generosity with new digital experiences and special opportunities to celebrate in-person with social distancing protocols in place.
