BALLET FOR ALL

Confidence on stage starts with a sense of belonging in the studio

The Ballet Conservatory of South Texas aspires to represent the diverse communities of San Antonio and create a collective voice through movement. We believe a welcoming and inclusive studio can make a tangible difference in the art created and strengthen the connection between dancers and supporters. Ballet can provide access to the performing arts and build life skills. Therefore, we are committed to:

  • Actively building relationships with individuals and organizations not currently serviced by our program.
  • Consistently learning and evolving.
  • Supporting all students to find their voice in the studio, on stage, and in life.
