Since its establishment in 2003, City Ballet San Francisco (CBSF) has placed students into national and international professional ballet and dance companies, as well as prestigious universities. Taught by exceptional faculty with strong knowledge in Vaganova training, our students perform in professional-quality productions multiple times a year and are provided with mentorship and cultural immersion opportunities that expand their artistic education - developing into some of the best dancers in the industry.


You are unique. So are we. 


CBSF provides our students with opportunities that not only meet, but exceed, what you would expect from a pre-professional ballet school.
