YOUTH & FAMILY
dance programs for all
At San Francisco Ballet we’re passionate about sharing our love of ballet with our neighbors in the San Francisco Bay Area community. We’re here to spark creativity and inspire imagination in our youth and family programs, community partnerships, and work with the special needs community.
Due to COVID-19, all of SF Ballet’s in-person education programs are on pause. SF Ballet invites families, PreK-12 students, and educators to our online classroom! Dance-along videos, virtual storytime, printable activities, coloring sheets, and more to enjoy from the comfort of your home. For our limited virtual offerings, visit SF Ballet Classroom.
LEARNING ABOUT THE BALLET
We're glad you're sharing your love of dance with the next generation. Here's how to ensure smooth sailing for everyone.

Take a Break During the Performance in the Family Viewing Area
SF Ballet provides a special place for a pause from the show inside the Opera House during Nutcracker and select other ballets throughout the season. Visit the north Dress Circle hall to find this child-friendly area. Whether your child needs a break during a performance, or you cannot return to your seat due to needing to use the restroom during the performance, or you arrive late to the Ballet, the Family Viewing Area provides a monitor to watch the stage and activities for children. From children’s books to writing letters to the dancers, the Family Viewing Area will entertain children until they’re ready to get back to the show.
