Chairman's Council

The Chairman's Council brings together a like-minded community of business leaders and philanthropists who share the goal of bringing world-class ballet to a world-class city. As a major donor to SF Ballet you can expect to be recognized with an array of exclusive opportunities designed to elevate your understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of every performance.

You’ll experience the creative process as choreographers work with dancers in rehearsal. You’ll witness a designer's vision come brilliantly to life as sets and costumes are built. And, you’ll go backstage at the Opera House for an insider’s look at the whirlwind of activity taking place just beyond the audience's sight.
