Faculty and Staff

San Francisco Ballet School has long enjoyed a reputation for providing quality dance training. The staff includes a permanent faculty of men and women of very different backgrounds who have danced with such companies as American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, National Ballet of Cuba, The Joffrey Ballet, English National Ballet, Boston Ballet, National Ballet of Marseilles, Pennsylvania Ballet, and San Francisco Ballet. Together they work closely to achieve a unified style, one that can easily adapt to the demands of San Francisco Ballet or any other company. The faculty is frequently augmented by San Francisco Ballet Company members and artistic staff.
