City Ballet San Francisco (CBSF) is committed to providing opportunities for aspiring dancers, and we understand that financial circumstances may be a consideration. Students seeking financial aid must apply through our financial aid application process.
Please be aware that our financial aid funds are limited and are sourced from our non-profit arm, the CBSF Foundation. The availability of scholarships relies on the generosity of donations received. Any financial aid beyond what is covered by the foundation comes directly from the school's resources.
Our financial aid program operates with a work-study structure, meaning recipients may be requested to volunteer their time and efforts on occasion. This collaborative approach allows us to foster a supportive community while providing financial assistance.
It's important to note that financial aid and scholarships exclusively cover tuition fees. Ancillary costs such as performance fees, studio rentals, housing, or any other additional expenses are not included in the financial aid package.
Due to the limited nature of our funds, not all applicants may receive assistance. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to supporting our dancers in their pursuit of excellence.
