Today San Francisco City Hall hosted our School Trainees for a packed-out lunchtime performance! Part of the Rotunda Dance series presented by Dancers’ Group and World Arts West, this performance saw the debut of corps de ballet dancer Myles Thatcher‘s new work Stone & Steel.
About the Trainee Program:
Established in 2004, the San Francisco Ballet School Trainee Program is comprised of students ranging in age from 16-19 who hail from across the globe. Perspective Trainees are chosen from the School’s most advanced level by SF Ballet School Director Helgi Tomasson and Associate Director Patrick Armand.
The goal of this pre-professional program is to help ease the dancers’ transition from the studio classroom to the professional stage. Read more about the program here!
