The San Francisco Bicycle Ballet was founded
in 1996 by an old school bicycle rider and pals of the road. The
Bike Ballet is performed to be viewed from above. The concept
was originally based upon marching bands and swimmers-busby styley
stuff. As the seasons continued- a firefly firework side look
has evolved. The focus is on the beauty of the bicycle, its ride
and the intermingling shapes of motion. Simply a treasure to behold!
We have performed at many benefits,
museums and special events.
We are community based and encourage
We have our own band (the original was the Spoke Tones and then many fabulous others: Guillermo, Trumpets, Lenny Gonzalez Cello, Gregory Lennox Forbes Life on Space, Molten Grog, Charbo, Chump from LA and many others),
a core group of active members and a team of veteran ballerinos
We always have a summer show and we
ask our talented film makers, musicians and other enabled friends
to join in the show.
We support bicycling as a way to have
fun and be social.
