San Francisco Ballet

San Francisco Ballet, the oldest professional ballet company in America, has emerged as a world-class arts organization since it was founded as the San Francisco Opera Ballet in 1933. Initially, its primary purpose was to train dancers to appear in lavish, full-length opera productions. Considered one of the top three ballet companies in the United States, San Francisco Ballet is committed to not only the foundational ballet classics, but also to commissioning new and innovated works with some of the 21st century’s leading choreographers.
