SF Ballet Shake, Rattle and Pointe

Welcome to our Team Page! 

San Francisco Ballet School’s Dance Class for People with Parkinson’s is celebrating 7 years of dancing together in SF Ballet studios (and on Zoom) and is excited to join Moving Day again this year. We say Movement is the Medicine for People with Parkinson’s and in our dance classes we emphasize large balletic movements and integrate modern, folk, and social dance. Classes are designed to honor PD-specific concerns such as balance, flexibility, coordination, isolation, and depression.

Our dancing is enhanced by our pianists and community building social gatherings after class.  Here is a short video about our classes: (copy and paste into browser)

We are grateful to the Parkinson's Foundation who through a community service grant helps support our classes. With their support we dance together weekly (Tuesdays on Zoom and Saturdays at the Studios) and bring dance to where people with Parkinson’s congregate and reside.

Classes are free of charge to all dancers, family, friends, supporters, and care partners. Contact Lead Teacher Cecelia Beam at for more information or to register.

Each dollar we raise for Moving Day goes a long way in helping the Parkinson's Foundation fulfill its mission of improving the lives of the one million Americans with Parkinson's. Please support us in this fight by donating. Your generosity will help raise awareness, more funding and more understanding of a disease that affects so many of our family and friends. Join the fight to beat Parkinson’s Disease!
