Ballet San Antonio Academy, formerly Mayra Worthen Ballet School, was established in 1984. The name change to Ballet San Antonio Academy came with the building of a new state of the art dance studio. The Academy, under the direction of Melissa Mulligan, offers a professional training program in Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Contemporary, Modern and Tap for those students wanting to pursue a career in dance, as well as a recreational program for those who want to dance for fun or exercise. Ballet San Antonio Academy is also home to Ballet Latino de San Antonio and a Pre-Professional dance company, San Antonio Youth Ballet.

The faculty of Ballet San Antonio Academy is made up of professionals who encourage artistic growth in their students.  These teachers have proven their ability to train professional dancers, and their goal is to continue the reputation for excellence for which the school has been noted since its inception.

Ballet San Antonio Academy (BSAA) is excited to announce that it now offers free registration fee (a value of $40) to all active military families. The BSAA family knows how difficult it can be to find a dance studio when the families have to relocate and wants to make that transition easier.  BSAA is very proud of our armed forces and their families and want to thank them for their service.  This promotion applies to new enrolling students and is a one time discount.
