Over 25,000 people participate in our community programs annually, from school children, teachers, seniors, and Bay Area families to fellow artists, volunteers, hospitals, and the general public. Each year, San Francisco Ballet donates over 4,000 performance tickets to nonprofit organizations that serve many diverse Bay Area communities. We hope these programs provide introduction, enrichment, and opportunity for anyone to explore dance as a powerful and important cultural art form.
