This is a very good academy for kids and adults likewise. I enrolled here for a class last year and I must say the instructor was professional and I learned a lot.

Our family loves Presidio Dance Theatre School. We love going into the Presidio and we love the mixing the arts in such a natural setting. Our girls have made friendships that will last for many years, we are sure! AND BEST OF ALL, the girls are developing into lovely ballerinas, accomplished with much stage time here in SF and internationally. You can find a better program. That's why Presidio Dance wins award after award. It's the Parents Choice each year!

My 8 year old had a very nice experience at Presidio Dance Theatre Young Artists Summer Camp. Her ballet teacher, Miss Connie, was very exciting and her folk teacher, Miss Sherene, was simply charming. My daughter is still doing the dance steps today! During the week Alicia Adame (who danced with the Jose Greco Dance Company and most recently is teaching at LINES) taught classical Spanish (and the Academy provided the students character shoes and skirts---very fun!) Choreographer Caroline Simmonds taught Greek folk dancing and culture, as the Academy's Junior Company is preparing for a tour to Greece to perform with Ms. Simmonds' group over there. Artists of Presidio Dance Theatre repeated their DANCING ACROSS CULTURES repertoire with the kids and my daughter felt very special to be "working" alongside high school and college camp counselors! This idea of passing down dances is unique and something that makes Presidio Dance Theatre special. My daughter also enjoyed her field trip to Crissy Field Center, Gelato at George Lucas' Center, and arts and crafts with Miss Yasmine. We signed up for an additional week! It's no wonder that the camp filled to capacity so quickly. We will register for the Fall program and I heartily recommend you investigate. What I like best is that this is not only fun, but educational.

There are some things you should be beware of.....first of all, the dance director Sherene Melania is "the best" teacher in San Francisco. She's young and accomplished and you couldn't ask for a better role model for your daughter. Her teaching method is consistently nurturing and inspiring to the children!!!! Next, there are an amazing number of FREE parking spaces and safe drop-off areas for Presidio Dance Theatre. I have been worn out driving in circles trying to find parking for my daughter's dance classes at other schools. This is the place to go! Lastly, I can't believe how many folk dances my daughter has learned to perfection and her face glows when she dances---it is fabulous. She learns about the cultures and customs of each dance, too. I have seen growth in her ballet ability, too. The Russian classical ballet program is well worth the drive out to the Presidio. If you are searching for the perfect fit for your child, don't go to Presidio Dance Theatre unless you are ready to experience NOTHING LIKE THIS! It is a unique program with a unique setting.....and lots of parking! We are so happy we made the drive out and look forward to many years to come! Joan, Mother of 12 year old

I heard all about Presidio Dance Theatre from parents of my kids' friends. It seems whatever we were involved in....there was a lot of excitement generated about this family friendly non-profit organization. My son and daughter joined this year and both were accepted into the "STUDIO TO STAGE" program. They look forward to performing at the Opera House this month and the Palace of Fine Arts next month! What professional education! All the costumes are provided for performances...and they are so beautiful. I understand that they have been designed and brought over from Saint Petersburg, Russia (from the Kirov Ballet) and are provided at no cost to us. Classes are reasonable and the opportunities to perform at special events and in the theaters is great. Presidio Dance Theatre is a great alternative to San Francisco Ballet, all the kids DANCE and enjoy the interesting array of international dances. I understand that kids from more than 70 different schools meet at the Academy for training.....all of us love it! I also must add that my kids absolutely adore Miss Sherene Melania, who is the Artistic Director and Choreographer. She amazes us with her multi-talents and the kids are learning a great deal. The staff are warm and work to make the complete experience special for each child. I highly recommend Presidio Dance Theatre.
