Hey, Comal and Hays County parents of aspiring dancers! If you are looking for a dance studio that doesn’t over-sexualize your grade school girls, that teaches male students to be strong and involved without stigma, and that produces spectacular, empowered dancers, bring your kids to CTBC. That was leagues above any dance recital I have ever seen.

Our little guy loves to dance. So, we researched and tried a few of the local options. I’m not easily impressed, but CTBC is WORTH RAVING ABOUT!
First, they offer small classes (of various dance styles) with both an instructor and helper. This means the dancers get lots of individual attention and are moving the entire time. Ms. Catherine has a teaching degree, and it shows!
Second, they care about teaching the ART of dance. Everything is age appropriate: my four-year-old’s warm-ups include ‘stirring cake batter’ and ‘painting rainbows’, and they are ‘turned into dolphins’ to practice their leaps over boxes. Instructors write the relevant dance terminology on the mirror so that it can be reviewed. As the students get older, they have the option to take recreational or pre-professional classes, and lots of the pre-professional students are being accepted to study at prestigious dance companies. At the recital, the students’ technique was the best I’ve observed.
Third, the price of CTBC is comparable to other studios, and the class gives me an opportunity to grab a cup of coffee on the square with my husband. It’s a welcomed part of our week.
I knew once I walked into the lobby and heard the classical music pouring from the studio that at CTBC I was giving my child a gift that will last a lifetime.
