The studio was founded in 1986 and has since expanded to include a staff of nine professionally trained, experienced teachers. The staff continues to perform and take classes as well as teach courses in order to provide students with updated teaching techniques and choreography. The school offers Classical Ballet, Broadway Jazz, Fusion Jazz, Tap, Modern, Musical Theater and Character to children, teens and adults of all skill levels and offers guest artist master classes on a regular basis. The North Beach school provides two fully equipped studios (with sprung Marley floors), safety cameras, a comfortable waiting room, rest rooms and dressing rooms.
Our mission is to find the dancer within. Through dance, The Abigail Francisco School of Classical Ballet’s goal is to instill a sense of self-confidence and to build self-esteem by developing poise and coordination, rhythm, flexibility, and general body development.
The Abigail Francisco School of Classical Ballet offers a complete program of physical, emotional and artistic support to their students. We are at the forefront when the subject is quality, responsibility, respect, professionalism and seriousness.
We offer training for those aiming for a professional dance career or those enjoying dance as recreation. We appreciate and respect both purposes and offer a secure and supportive environment. As natural and early talent are not the only keys to success, we help our students thrive by learning the dance skills through hard work, repetition and discipline. We care about and protect our students.
