Since 1987, SAMB has provided local dancers with master classes with world-renowned dance faculty.
Summer Dance 2019 will include three levels of technique classes in a two-week intensive workshop that culminates in a performance showcase.
SAMB opens Season 36 with the classic Brothers Grimm fairy tale, Hansel and Gretel. This two-act ballet is a quaint look back at a time when villagers gathered in the town square to buy goods from their local flower and houseware vendors.
Follow Hansel and Gretel as they journey through the forest to a fascinating house of candies. Children will be delighted by the playful village children's dance, adults will be enticed by the deliciously dark tale.
SAMB celebrates 11 seasons of partnering with ARTS San Antonio to present The Nutcracker. American Midwest Ballet will come to town in August to audition local dancers for supporting cast roles such as party scene children and toy soldiers.
As a nonprofit serving San Antonio's youth, we foster creativity, confidence and commitment through dance. We are the only dance company in San Antonio to offer our students access to the professional companies and higher learning institutions through the prestigious Regional Dance America; creating unprecedented career opportunities.
RDA/SW Festival 2020, March 26-28, will be hosted by Western Arkansas Ballet.
At the 2019 Festival, SAMB Dancers were awarded $9,500 in scholarships to summer dance intensives and early acceptances into college dance departments.
Dance Kaleidoscope, first presented in San Antonio in 1987, showcases our local dancers and guest artists in a mixed-repertoire concert of classical and contemporary dance. Seasons past have included Alun Jones' A Midsummer Night's Dream, George Skibine's The Firebird, Fernando Bujones' Jazz Swing and Harrison McEldowney's Dance Sport.
