In 2014, Texas Center for Arts + Academics began working with a professional advisory group that included dancers and educators from academia and performing arts, to carefully assess the viability of a new dance school. Due to the strong reputation of the organization’s legacy of artistic excellence and its high quality programs—including the Academy Dance Company at Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts under the direction of Sheyna Ferraro—it was determined that our community would benefit from expanded preprofessional dance training opportunities. Following a summer series of master classes, Texas Dance Conservatory opened in fall 2015 with a vision to provide rigorous, disciplined training to nurture the growth and development of young dancers within a fun, accessible and inclusive environment.Start Your Journey With Us!
Texas Dance Conservatory creates technically strong concert style dancers by providing rigorous instruction in high quality classes. Our disciplined training is designed to nurture the growth of young dancers in a fun, accessible and inclusive environment. Primary dance techniques include ballet, modern, and jazz. Classical ballet is the foundation upon which we build balanced training in other styles. With a sound anatomical approach, dancers increase strength and ability while gaining body awareness and longevity in their dance practice. Through the combination of classical and contemporary studies in each class, versatility in technique is achieved and students build increased vocabulary and understanding of the art form. Whether dancers have professional aspirations or are interested in recreation, they will feel at home in our collegial and safe environment while they exercise their talent and creativity.Explore Our Classes
