The Annex is one of the most unique dance studios/event venues, in San Antonio, TX. Featuring an ample floating dance floor and nightclub inspired lighting; it is one of the most comfortable ballrooms in the city with a very eclectic lounge ambiance.
The Annex serves the perfect place to learn and practice the art of partner dancing along with other dance disciplines offered by our highly qualified Independent Instructors. It is really cool inside & y'all are always welcomed!
The Annex offers both private dance lessons and group dance classes.
Our main dance floor is perfect for smooth standard dances. We also have two smaller floors that are great for private & group lessons.
Private lessons are scheduled by appointment through an instructor or by calling the main number.
For current group classes check the studio events calendar.
