What we're about

Public Group

Throughout the week the SF Free School offers free classes to anyone and everyone who wants to learn, have fun and meet new people. Classes we've offered have been in music and dance, martial arts and yoga, meditation and philosophy, dating and relationships, acting and improvisation, networking and social media, foreign languages, computer use, job hunting, startups - and many other topics as well.

The SF Free School is focused on sharing activities and teaching skills which are fun, healthy and useful. We are currently only listing classes that are located in the SF area. Our events are often styled as potlucks, classes, workshops and public talks. We go on field trips, so we can explore new areas and discover new things, and we like to gather in parks and public areas. Indoors we gather in community centers and community meeting rooms, or we might be found in cafes, private homes and in public classrooms.

All classes and events at our locations are free of charge and open to all. We do not ask for cash for any of our classes and events and everyone is always welcome to attend our classes and events free of charge. Though our instructors and event hosts can accept donations which are freely offered for the classes and events they hold with us they may never ask for cash or donations from anyone who attends the classes and events they make available through the SF Free School.

We only have one rule at the Free School: Be Excellent to Each Other – and that is the only payment we ever require.

So come and enjoy yourself, start training your body and your mind, meet new people - or teach and share what you know. You are always welcome.
