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 d... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
Do not believe the negative comments below....they must be fabricated or other dance companies posting false reports. I'm a real Mom with my 8 year old daughter who attends BSAA. My daughter and I tried a lot of ballet studios before this one. We used the free trials with several schools. A friend recommended BSAA. Her daughter goes here and was chosen to be in the last 2 productions of the Nutcracker. My daughter... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I have done much research on a ballet school for my daughter. After looking all over San Antonio, I have found Ballet San Antonio Academy to be the perfect place for her. Not only are the instrucors well-educated and professional, but they genuinely care about the total well-being of my little girl. The director is hands-on and approachable, always a warm smile. We have enjoyed the program immensely, and you won't fi... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

Sure sometimes there can be challenges, but you get that everywhere you go. Dollar for dollar - well worth the technique and training my children are receiving. A strong... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
We pulled our daughter out for a different reason. We were very disappointed in the quality. They have very low expectations of the students. Much of the lesson time is wasted (they start late and fuss around with music and allow students to come in late which disrupts everyone) and they don't learn nearly as much as they could be learning. We attended the ""demonstration"" and came away shocked at how bad it rea... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
