City Ballet School of San Francisco

City Ballet School of San Francisco offers classical Russian Vaganova based training, taught by the finest teachers, and modeled after Artistic Director Galina Alexandrova's own training at the Bolshoi Academy in Moscow. Although the base of the curriculum is in Russian training, the intention is to make each dancer well rounded enough to have the skills, that when combined with talent, offer them the best chance of being in a professional company or to gain scholarships through dance. All may not be able to reach these lofty goals, but each student will be challenged to meet their potential, and all will benefit from a life enriched through dance.

City Ballet School's extensive Academic Year includes three to four performance opportunities, a dynamic, cross-discipline Summer Intensive program, and, for the aspiring dancer, a Pre-Professional division.

City Ballet School's excellent teachers were hand selected to ensure that each student receives the most advanced ballet education possible. In addition to Artistic Director Galina Alexandrova, the school boasts a Master Teacher, Lupe Calzadilla, a former National Ballet of Cuba principal dancer. City Ballet is also fortunate to have Yuri Zhukov, a world class choreographer and former Kirov and San Francisco Ballet principal dancer.

Located in the heart of San Francisco's performing arts district, City Ballet School features an 11,000 square foot facility designed exclusively for dance. The studios have natural lighting, tall open beam ceilings, and sprung Harlequin studio dance floors.
