RISE Through Dance

Our community partners give our scholars a well-rounded experience.

Scholars will benefit both physically and mentally, taking advantage of an exclusive opportunity, to take part in the American Ballet Theatre curriculum.

Brilliance from Head to Toe

In partnership with the San Antonio Ballet School, Essence Prep offers free ballet courses to all of our scholars, grades K-2, as part of the core curriculum.

Scholars will learn the curriculum from the American Ballet Theatre, the same theatre where Misty Copeland is a principal dancer!

Dance Benefits

The Body: Taking ballet courses at a young age increases physical strength as scholars will learn and practice proper posture and build muscle and flexibility.

The Mind: And while there are many physical benefits of dance, dancing can also have a positive impact on mental health. Dance is an amazing activity for developing confidence as well as cognitive and communication skills.
