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. A holiday schedule will be provided in advance and parents are invited to observe class twice per year on dates to be announced.

The 2015-16 School Year is underway and enrollment is closed. 2016-17 Enrollment will open April 8, 2016. The class schedule will be posted in March 2016.

No audition is required, but class size is limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Students must meet the appropriate age requirement by September 1, 2016.  Students who turn eight before September 1, 2016 should audition for the regular school year program.

Scholarship and Financial Aid are not available for Pre-Ballet classes. There are no additional payment plans for Pre-Ballet.  No Refunds.

Please note:
Pre-Ballet is not a part of the graded curriculum at SF Ballet School and students seeking admission to SF Ballet School Level 1 will  be required to audition when they are age-eligible. Students in Pre-Ballet are not eligible for participation in Nutcracker or Student Showcase performances. San Francisco Ballet School reserves the right to cancel class if the minimum enrollment is not met.
