ABOUT SAN FRANCISCO BALLET SCHOOL
San Francisco Ballet School offers a challenging curriculum, taught by faculty members drawn from the ranks of SF Ballet and companies around the world. The School benefits from its close relationship with the Company. In fact, the School is a fundamental part of the institution—more than half of the Company’s dancers are graduates. They emphasize strong classical technique, a flow of movement and athleticism that suggests a sense of energy, freedom, and joy. This style—which reflects the kind of dancing favored by SF Ballet—adapts to meet the demands of any choreographer, any company, and any type of movement.
