Pre-Ballet

2016-17 School Year

There's a place for your child in the San Francisco Ballet family!

Pre-Ballet classes at San Francisco Ballet School introduce young children to the fundamentals of classical ballet, focusing on proper body alignment, basic ballet technique and terminology, and musicality. But as part of the SF Ballet School family, your energetic young child will also learn much more than ballet. Exposure to dance reinforces important life skills like creativity, discipline, and team participation - all in a safe, fun, family environment. Make Pre-Ballet classes at San Francisco Ballet School a part of your child's life!
