Annual Auditions

Registration begins at

Location: 11210 Disco St. 210-495-2787 Requirements for each company are listed below.
*Be prepared to dance in ballet attire with hair up.  Bring ballet shoes, pointe shoes if en pointe, jazz shoes, tap shoes and folklorico as needed.

SASPA Dance Companies provide continual performance opportunity for the more dedicated student.

As an integral part of the total training of the young dancer, the stage experience and community service also enhances our community with entertainment often not affordable or possible for many San Antonio organizations.  Costuming is provided by SASPA, free or at a nominal cost.  In addition, all companies have a feature in the annual end of year school performance.  The audition for SASPA companies is held the last Saturday of August each year.  The company classes start the first week of September each year.  SASPA dance companies are for ages 6 and older and casting is based on age, ability, attitude, work ethic  and overall dedication.

From 1984 – 2018, the companies have performed in a multitude of events throughout San Antonio.  This includes art shows, Fiesta events, hospital openings, orphanages, retirement communities, corporate parties, industrial shows, grand openings, The McNay, The Tobin Theater and theme park appearances.  They also perform with their sister semi-professional company,  the Alamo City Dance Company.  These performances are annually and they are the Fall Festival of Dance, The Nutcracker and the spring show An Evening of Classics 2 Contemporary.   Each company gets to perform different styles of dance from ballet to jazz, tap, hip hop and even ethnic styles including flamenco and folklorico.

Prior to auditioning please consider your interest, passion, drive, dedication and the commitment it takes to be part of a company (just like a sports team). Partial or limited dedication is not fair to directors, dancers, choreographers and especially yourself both in training and appearance on stage.   All directors / choreographers reserve the right to take any dancer out of a production number if said dancer has missed too many rehearsals, classes or has a bad attitude.  This is instilled for the protection of all dancers from being injured and the overall attitude of a company and its members.  Sports teams apply the exact same requirements.
