Pre-Ballet

2015-16 School Year

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

SF Ballet School welcomes your child to Pre-Ballet.  Classes introduce boys and girls to the fundamentals of classical ballet training and will focus on proper body alignment, basic ballet technique and terminology, and musicality.  All classes meet once a week as noted for each Pre-Ballet section and are taught to live piano accompaniment.  Pre-Ballet Classes will begin after Labor Day and run through June 4, 2016.  A holiday schedule will be provided in advance and parents are invited to observe class twice per year on dates to be announced.
