Owned and operated since 2004 by its founders Summer Lee Rhatigan and her husband Lanny Berenson, The San Francisco Conservatory of Dance has closed its doors following the conclusion of its 2018 summer program in August.
A message from the founders:
We—Summer and Lanny—are extremely proud of what the Conservatory has accomplished over the past fourteen years thanks to our exemplary faculty and staff. We believe that together we’ve succeeded in creating a learning environment that has positively impacted some 3,000 young people in significant ways.
To everyone who has been associated—either closely or loosely—with the Conservatory, please accept our heartfelt best wishes for good health and success in your endeavors.
As we are by no means finished organizing dance projects, we invite everyone to stay in touch to see what we will be working on in Europe. Please check back here, or feel free to send us a message, for updates on future projects and dance adventures.
