Sarita’s fuels passion for dance
While TV’s “Dancing with the Stars” may inspire some to improve their ballroom dancing skills, others may be inspired to express themselves in different dance styles. This is where Sarita’s Dance Studio in San Antonio can help, offering classes in tap to ballet, and jazz to folklorico.
Established in 1980, Sarita Zuniga offers dance education in disciplines such as tap, jazz, ballet, ballet folklorico, hip hop, pointe, and pre-school. Sarita’s even offers performance and career opportunities for students who want to take their dance training to the next level. The studio also serves as a dance supply shop, offering name-brand dance attire from ballet slippers, jazz shoes, tap shoes, leotards, tights, and leg warmers to jazz attire for dance teams, dance bags, and hair and dance accessories for performances, such as earrings, eyelashes, and makeup.
Sarita started studying dance such as ballet, flamenco, and jazz at the age of 6. She was involved in the dance team in high school and continued to perfect her dance training. She is a graduate of JW Nixon High School in Laredo. In 1972, Sarita moved to San Antonio and continued her dance training. In 1980, she founded Sarita’s Dance Studio and began to teach dance, aerobics, and wellness classes in various locations.
She has been featured in various prestigious magazines, both locally and nationally, and has been honored for her community leadership and for making a positive impact on the south side of San Antonio.
Other instructors with Sarita are Sandra Ramirez, Marina Zuniga-Johnson, Heather Talamantez, and Adriana Chavez.
Dance tuition starts at $50.
Sarita and her instructors believe that their success comes as a result of providing solid training and quality service, along with an underlying belief that every child should experience the wonderful world of dance in a positive and encouraging atmosphere.
In addition, Sarita’s houses four professional dance companies. Dancers who want to experience dancing professionally can dance with Alegria Jr. 2, Alegria Junior, Alegria Dance Co., and Pasion de San Antonio.
Sarita’s Dance Studio Inc. is located at 3739 Commercial in San Antonio. Hours for the studio and dance supply shop are Monday through Thursday from 3:30-8:30 p.m., and Saturdays 9 a.m. until noon.
