As a valued Christensen Society member, you enjoy personalized service from SF Ballet staff and exclusive opportunities to see SF Ballet from an insider's perspective. Rehearsals, receptions, and other behind-the-scenes events with artists of the Company are offered throughout the year.

The Christensen Society, named for the three brothers whose artistic vision pioneered SF Ballet, offers a foundational connection to the heritage of the Company. Christensen Society member donations enable SF Ballet to underwrite season productions, acquire contemporary and classical works for our repertory, conduct national and international tours, train hundreds of young dancers at the San Francisco Ballet School, and share the love of dance with underserved children and families throughout the Bay Area.
