by Jordan, Student, San Francisco Ballet School
Hi! My name is Jordan. I’m 17 years old and a trainee with the San Francisco Ballet School in the United States.
I started taking ballet classes when I was about 3 years old, just the days of wearing pouffy pink tutus while dancing around aimlessly in the studio. I became more serious about ballet when I was about 8 and realized that I was becoming so passionate about the art form that I dreamed of pursuing it as a career someday.
Then at 16, I moved from my home in Southern California to become a part of the Trainee Program with the San Francisco Ballet School. Here in San Francisco, the ballet school owns a beautiful 3 story home where not only the Trainees live but other students from across the United States and even the World. It has been such an amazing and fulfilling experience attending the San Francisco Ballet School this past year and I am honored to be returning to the Trainee Program for my second year this fall.
