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.
Students have access to add to their training with other dance genres such as modern. This provides a well-rounded dance education and a progressive knowledge of additional dance styles.
Youth & Adult
The teen and adult classes offer the art of dance for beginners through intermediate and advanced levels. Whether the student is a teen, an adult beginner or is looking to return to dance, they will enjoy the many benefits of ballet which include: improving posture and poise, sculpting and toning long, lean muscle, and helping to relieve stress. Attending ballet classes regularly will also enhance overall physical fitness, increase flexibility, strength, and balance.
The Ballet Conservatory hosts a thriving homeschool program that serves students ages 3-18 and their families. Our classes provide educational enrichment in the heart of San Antonio, and all classes are taught by our nurturing, professional faculty.
