Every year in January, the SFB Company has a celebratory performance to kick off the new season and showcase the incredible company. After the performance, a fabulous party is held at San Francisco’s City Hall where the city’s finest show up in tuxedos and beautiful ball gowns. It’s so glamorous!

This year I was lucky enough to perform in a tutu onstage and then show-up in a ball gown at the Gala. I felt like a princess on and off stage!
