The Jocelyn Vollmar Legacy Circle

Giving in good company.

Beloved as a ballerina who reigned at SF Ballet from the 1940s to the 1970s, and as a long-standing mentor to students at San Francisco Ballet School, Jocelyn Vollmar epitomizes the strength, grace, and artistry at the heart of SF Ballet. With an unparalleled dedication to excellence, a strong work ethic, and a fearless embrace of the new, it’s no wonder we named our planned giving initiative after this one-of-a-kind ballerina.
