Founded in 2005, the Ballet Conservatory of South Texas is the only 501 (c)(3) non-profit ballet academy and pre-professional performance company in San Antonio. Being non-profit, we can truly focus on providing exceptional instructional and performance experiences for our dancers through a passionate community of best-in-class instructors, involved parents, and generous supporters. Our fundraising directly benefits the development of dancers and allows us to share the beauty of the ballet artform. Through grants and generous donations from local businesses and individuals, we are uniquely able to provide our Conservatory Company dancers with elevated performance opportunities by hiring renowned choreographers and guest artists and performing on a professional stage with beautiful costumes and props in front of large audiences. These performances are not only offered to the public, but also shared with the community by providing free admission to special showings for elementary school children. We love ballet and its benefits in developing character, confidence, and discipline. Our fundraising also allows us to share our passion through complimentary ballet instruction to KIPP Camino Academy, a college-preparatory public charter school dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities inside loop 410 for success in college and in life. Finally, The Ballet Conservatory of South Texas is the only ballet academy to be named Ballet San Antonio’s “Preferred School” for developing serious young dancers. We invite you to be part of our unique community of passionate ballet advocates; as a dancer, involved parent, or donor.
