I would consider the Lake Travis ISD. Their Dance Team is awesome and very competitive plus they have won a lot of awards. You also have several well know dance studios including the new TeXarts studio that opened up recently in the area. All the instructors there are professional teachers and have impressive dance backgrounds. I live and specialize in this area and can tell you this studio has added a lot to our area. I have included a couple of links to help you in your research and would be happy to help you in your home search or answer any other questions you may have.

Set all this in the gorgeous and centrally located West Lake Hills, and you have the makings of a memorable high school experience. I have a senior at the High School and he is more than prepared for college and life beyond. My two middle schoolers, I'm sure, will be well prepared, too, when they graduate. The school district deserves it's great reputation. I live and specialize in West Lake Hills area of Austin and would be happy to help you in making the best decision for you and your family. Alisa's and Synergy are two great dance companies in West Lake.

I agree with Russ! I taught in Eanes ISD for 13 years, 8 of those at Westlake High School. My eldest daughter graduated from there in 2008 with 19 college hours under her belt and is currently a junior in college. My middle daughter, the dancer, started her freshman year at Westlake today! Class sizes are very reasonable for a public school and students are able to develop strong relationships with teachers. The dance programs are excellent. You have two excellent choices between the two districts.
A lot of times you'll hear Eanes is the best however consider this. While the Elementry and middle schools in Eanes are appropriately populated the High School, Westlake is huge and is way over populated, this is mainly because of Football and keeping the pool of talent as large as it can be.
Consider Lake Travis as a good alternative to Eanes.
The school district that has a reutation for being the best is Eanes ISD. However, there are many great schools in the Austin Area. Westlake High, Westwood High and LBJ are ranked among the top 100 public high schools in the country by Newsweek.

I really don't know much about the dance scene, but I'm sure I could ask around.
