The Jocelyn Vollmar Legacy Circle

The Jocelyn Vollmar Legacy Circle (JVLC) is named for the beloved ballerina who reigned at San Francisco Ballet from the 1940s to the 1970s. She was also a long-standing teacher and mentor to students at San Francisco Ballet School, with a dedication to excellence, a strong work ethic, and a fearless embrace of ballet's innovation. These qualities represent some of the best of SF Ballet and we are honored to have her as our namesake for this group.

When you include San Francisco Ballet in your legacy plans, we invite you to join the Jocelyn Vollmar Legacy Circle. In acknowledgment of the way your gift will have a long-term and lasting impact on art, our members gain insight into the creative process and receive behind-the-scenes access.
