Four professional dancers from the San Francisco Ballet recently visited the South Shore to take a class from local ballet mistress Robin Price.

Company member Shannon Roberts, who grew up on the South Shore, continues to study with Price whenever she visits on a break from her rigorous rehearsal and performance schedules in San Francisco.

Roberts invited fellow company members Courtney Elizabeth and Miriam Rowan, along with soloist Frances Chung, to one of Price’s Saturday-morning ballet classes at the Marcia Sarosik Dance Studio.

“Dancers from the studio were excited, thrilled, inspired, awestruck and a little overwhelmed to be able to be in a class with dancers of that caliber,” Price said.

“It is an honor when Shannon is here. She is not only an amazing dancer, she is a wonderful and sweet person. We love her,” said Emily Blair, one of the students in class that day.
