We are new to this school and I have to say I'm very impressed. I called the school to inquire about classes for my 5 year old daughter and was really impressed with the amount of care that went into her placement. I was asked why we were interested in dance, what our goals for her are, and whether she has had any training before. After really listening to her needs and our reasons for selecting ballet for her a dance teacher and class was recommended. I had initially intended to place her in a weekday afternoon class, but after being told about the teachers and hearing their best recommendations for her I chose to go with a Saturday morning class. She absolutely loves it and the teacher is fabulous. I am so pleased with the entire experience thus far and will probably add another review, or amend this one, as time goes by but I cannot say enough about the individual care we were given and how happy we are with our class placement, the staff, and the atmosphere.

I love Dorothy Keck dance! My daughter has been attending classes there since she was 2 1/2 and she loves it. The teachers are very patient and know how to teach young children the different stages of dance while also making it fun and exciting. The end of yr recital also gives all the kids some…
I joined Monica's school late last year. I went to see my niece practice and I fell in love with the atmosphere. I am currently taking Spanish Flamenco class. I love it! I replaced my usual workouts at the gym with a little Flamenco flare. Classes are once a week and an hour long. I would de…
The Ballet Conservatory is a wonderful organization! Very high level of dance instruction given. My daughter really enjoys it there and I love the small classes they have so she gets the individual attention that she needs.
While I have not been to their new school (The Quenedit Ballet School) in San Antonio, my daughter has had the honor of training with the husband-wife team of Catalina Garza and Ernesto Quenedit in Chicago for two years. If you are the parent of a serious ballet dancer, Catalina and Ernesto have to ability to train your child to a world-class level. Not only are they former international dancers, they are parents. With that, they bring a supportive, yet very rigorous teaching style into the studio. The kids respond in kind and find themselves capable of doing things they never even imagined. I always felt like I my daughter was getting incredible instruction in a safe environment. Ballet dancers in San Antonio are lucky to have such a school in their midst.
Wonderful personalized instruction. All of the dance instructors are highly qualified and genuinely interested in their students. Not only are the instructors terrific, the owner reaches out to all students and provides excellent support to his staff. My wife and I enjoy the exercise, increased personal time and learning a skill we use on a regular basis, dancing in Gruene Hall once a month or more. Partly because of the personalized instruction, my new hobby is ballroom dancing. I encourage anyone who wants to learn to dance for a single event or for a continued experience, look into this dance studio; you'll grow more than you ever expected. Charles & Mary
My husband and I wanted our first dance to be unique and memorable, not the typical swaying side to side. We were so fortunate to have met Tammy! She took our ideas and desires to create a beautiful and elegant first dance. She is very patient and extremely knowledgable about each dance. Neither one of us had dance experience but she had us looking like experienced dancers by the end of our lessons. Tammy had us trained well so that even the wedding day jitters didn't interfere with our dance. It was my favorite part of the night! Tammy is WONDERFUL and I would recommend her to everyone!
We've been to several ballet studios in the surrounding area and I can honestly say that BSAA has had the best teaching that I have seen. Melissa has taken my daughter from "maybe prepointe next year" (assessment from another studio) to working off-barre in her pointe shoes in less than 5 months. Between the hard work invested by my daughter, the attention to detail and support and quality of instruction by her teachers, she is now able to safely dance en pointe. They even went with her to fit her for her new pointe shoes. Highly recommended.
Superior ballet training - the best in San Antonio! The school's director, Mayra Worthen, has a proven track record of more than 30 years of training students who have gone on to professional ballet careers with major performing companies. She also is the founder and creator of Ballet San Antonio, the city's premier performing company. Her instructors are excellent!! Stop by and try out or watch a class and you'll see for yourself.
I love Dorothy Keck dance! My daughter has been attending classes there since she was 2 1/2 and she loves it. The teachers are very patient and know how to teach young children the different stages of dance while also making it fun and exciting. The end of yr recital also gives all the kids something to look forward to and gives little ones a taste of what its like to be on the big stage without any competition.
I'm in love! Never would I have thought that I could dance. Holly and the entire team at Arthur Murray showed me otherwise. These guys are amazing!! Whether you're preparing for a wedding or some other special occasion, or looking to start a new hobby, or even find a new competitive outlet, Arthur Murray SA is the place to do it. I wished I had started 20-years ago!!
We found the owners Richard and Holly, the manager, Haylie, the instructors Luke, Mario and Si to be very accommodating. We have enjoyed both the private and group lessons. The parties that are offered and hosted by the Arthur Murray staff are an added value and helped us reinforce what we have learned. It’s been a wonderful learning experience. Angie and Lafe
My girlfriend and I have always wanted to learn to dance. We saw this studio driving by on loop 1604 and are now taking lessons. It's been awesome. The instructors are great and they teach a ton of different dances. If you've ever wanted to learn how to dance and live in the Stone Oak area, I'd highly recommend going! - Shawn & Helen
