Make Your Voice Count This November

With less than a month to go to vote in the 2020 Presidential Election, we at SF Ballet want to encourage our community to get out there and participate in this year’s election! Part of the mission of SF Ballet is to share our joy of dance with the widest possible audience, and we ask that you consider candidates and initiatives that will advocate for the future viability of the dance industry and arts sector as artists and cultural organizations are facing existential realities. We hope you will get out there and make your voice count, and here are a few online resources to help you register and vote safely!

Both English and Spanish subtitles available on this video.

We’ll be happy to be your accountability buddy—when you vote, use the hashtags #dance2vote and #sfballet, and we’ll cheer you on! (Note: as a non-profit, we are non-partisan, so we cannot respond to partisan messages.)

Thanks for taking action to help us all improve our community!
