In May 2014, Book Bank USA joined with Sasha De Sola, principal dancer with the San Francisco Ballet Company, to lead a program of introducing ballet to young students from schools in the San Francisco Bay Area.
As America’s oldest professional ballet company, San Francisco Ballet has enjoyed a long and rich tradition of artistic “firsts” since its founding in 1933, performing the first American productions of Swan Lake and Nutcracker, as well as the first 20th-century American Coppélia. A lively, vital ensemble, San Francisco Ballet is one of the three largest ballet companies in the United States.
This Book Bank USA program, which began in 2013, includes attending a ballet, going backstage to see the wig room, costume room, dressing rooms, speak with the staff culminating with a visit, and some “prancing” on the stage.
Book Bank USA plans to expand this program to the Hawaii Ballet Company in Honolulu next season as well.
