Editorial review from Citysearch 6/16/2013

I highly recommend City Ballet SF to future ballerinas. My daughter has been dancing at City Ballet SF since she was 5. Now she is 9 and going to 5th grade. She loves ballet very much. If I have any concern, I always ask the teachers, and they always give me some ideas how to improve her skills. Some people said the program director, Galina is mean teacher; however, I DISAGREE with that. She is a well-respected by all the students. She doesn't talk much but she cares about each student. When she does not teach, she usually observes them from upstairs. She knows each student's name and their progress by heart. \r \r City Ballet SF is very different than SF Ballet. Parents can observe the child through the observation glasses. If your child is participated in summer intense class, you are always welcomed to observe the last day of class. \r \r My husband and I are happy!! more

WORST ballet school run far far away 11/10/2011

City Ballet is unfortunately a terrible place for children and young adults. It is well known to be an intense Russian ballet school and turns out high caliber dancers, however, they do not nourish their dancers and teach them with understanding and care. The artistic director, Galina, is a mean teacher and completely uncommunicative with students and parents alike. Literally, no questions asked will be answered. In four years as a parent of a ballerina, I have never been afforded the opportunity to speak with my daughter's teachers and have never received a progress report. Class assignments are made with no communication whatsoever and favorites are clearly played. Policies are ad hoc and applied on an individual basis even though they claim to be policies made across the board. Lastly, students are not even welcome to ask questions in regard to form or technique. I can not imagine a school where questions from a diligent student are not permitted. How is a student supposed to learn in utter silence. City Ballet is supposed to be the reasonable alternative to SF Ballet School. Even at SF ballet school, parents are welcome to observe class twice a year, have parent teacher conferences and get a progress report twice a year. City Ballet provides no constructive feedback at all. This is no place for anyone to learn. more
