This is Amani, who danced his way into hearts around the world after his mom recorded him dancing home from a Nutcracker performance last December. Amani and his twin brother first came to SF Ballet’s studios for Summer Dance Camp through SF Ballet’s partnership with the Boys & Girls Club of San Francisco. School Director Patrick Armand spotted the brothers’ joyous dance (and perfect-for-ballet feet!) and immediately offered them scholarships to SF Ballet School.
After 2 years of pre-ballet lessons, the twins are currently enrolled in level 1 at SF Ballet School.
At SF Ballet, we’re thankful for everyone who loves ballet, and for all who support ballet. And particularly for those who attend performances, then dance their way home—whether in body or in spirit.
