Since 2005, the Ballet Conservatory of South Texas has been a thriving center for ballet training, inspiring students to fulfill their highest potential within a caring and nurturing environment.
The comprehensive Ballet Conservatory syllabus is based on the teaching of Marcia Dale Weary, founding Artistic Director of the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet. The syllabus is designed to develop technically strong, expressive ballet dancers, who ultimately can adapt to any style. Our distinguished faculty is comprised of instructors with years of teaching experience, most having danced with professional companies and/or holding college degrees in dance education.
Class placement for the Beginner division (ages 3-7 1/2 years) and Open Ballet is based on age while class placement for Intermediate and Advanced divisions is determined through an audition and evaluation process.
There is no audition or evaluation required for the Teen/Adult Beginner and Intermediate classes, which are part of the Recreational division. Students interested in enrolling in these classes may take a free trial class to determine which class best suits their skill level.
For any questions about class placement, please call our office at 210-820-3400 or send an email to email@example.com.
