San Francisco Ballet Announces New Web Site

Features Audience Engagement

San Francisco Ballet has launched a newly restyled website that emphasizes user experience and audience engagement and education.

The redesign was guided by audience research that revealed audiences with increased knowledge of ballet increase their appreciation of the art form.

The website’s new features include a behind-the-scenes look at the Company and its dancers, information about ballet as an art form, dancer profiles, production information about the repertory, and a design that adapts to mobile devices as well as desktop monitors.

The San Francisco Ballet web site is at http://www.sfballet.org .

Applications due November 1st

The Choreographer In Mentorship Exchange program (CHIME), founded by Margaret Jenkins in 2004, is now accepting applications for 2017. Three choreographers will be selected to engage with Jenkins in a mentorship relationship.

To date, CHIME has supported over 120 California choreographers in its thirteen years. The prgram is based on the values of promoting open communication between dance-makers of different generations, and the belief that artists should be fairly compensated for their work.

The three choreogreaphers accepted into the 2017 CHIME program will receive 80 hours of free studio time at the Margaret Jenkins Dance Lab for rehearsals and will work with Margaret Jenkins in the studio, participate in at least three weekend residencies, and present their work-in-development at CHIME Live!
