About Us

Serving the Talented Youth of San Antonio

By serving on the San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet Board of Directors, you are directly serving the arts and culture community, specifically home-grown talent. Annually we provide admission-free Children's Series programming to hundreds of local Title I school children, giving them access to the performing arts. Our members learn the importance of giving back to their community while receiving training to develop their talents.

We have the Support of the City of San Antonio

San Antonio Metropolitan Ballet is the only youth ballet company funded by the City of San Antonio Department of Arts and Culture. Through the DAC Operational Grant, SAMB is able to provide wonderful opportunities for our company members, supporting cast members and hired guest artists that go beyond the traditional dance school recital.

We Transform People Through Dance

Dancers who complete our program through senior year have a 100% high school graduation rate with a 75% arts-related college or professional career plan. Our alumni are dancing professionally all across the world from Atlanta Ballet to Siciliano Contemporary Ballet in Berlin. You can be a part of their pathway to success!
