About

Shan-Yee Poon Ballet School has cultivated grace and talent in its students for 24 years, but its namesake instructor’s relationship with dance goes back even further. Artistic director Shan-Yee Poon graduated from the Royal Ballet School in London and spent four years as a principal dancer at the State Theater in West Germany before relocating to San Francisco in 1984, where she landed a soloist spot at the San Francisco Opera Ballet. She and her team of professional instructors imbue the next generation of dancers with a strong foundation for ballet. They also offer comprehensive instruction in jazz, tap, hip-hop, contemporary, acrobatics, tumbling for tots, boys' ballet, ballet/tap combo, and dance movement for toddlers and parents. They welcome children, teens, and adults into a warm classroom setting at three striking studios, one of which has vaulted ceilings, intricate architectural details, and stained-glass windows. Though instructors demand the best from their pupils, they use loving encouragement as their main teaching technique.
