SFB school

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

I have a question that i don't know whee to post, also i don't even know if it is appropriate. I have been wondering about this for sometime now.

About a year ago, in people magazine there was an article about a mother suing SFB school for denying her daughter into their school because she was overweight. I was wondering if anyone knowif this was resolved.

I know that weight issues are not discussed, but this really has more to do with the integrity of oneof the best schools in the country. I think it is sad that this occured at all, and if the mother was a wise dance teacher, as she claimed, she should have had an idea of this before hand. Anyway, would like to know if anyone knows anything.

This was discussed at the time, Rachel -- but I don't know if the posts are still on the board. (We've had to delete lots of posts in the past because of space constraints.) You might do a search for San Francisco Ballet School or SFB School and see what turns up.

I don't remember, now, how this was resolved. Does anyone else? I think LMCTech and Paul Parish had opinions on this one -- I hope you don't mind my mentioning your names.

The young girl's name was Fredrika Keefer, and a quick Google search seems to indicate the matter is still pending.

As a note, the School's position is that the denial of admission wasn't based on body type. It should also be noted there were 400 available places and 1400 applicants.
