SAN FRANCISCO -- Ribbon cutting ceremonies were held Monday for the new $13 million home of the San Francisco Ballet, a four-story structure called 'unprecedented in the entire history of the dance in America.'

'This marks the first time a major ballet has a home built from scratch, from the ground up,' said Dr. Richard E. LeBlond, president of the San Francisco Ballet Association.
