Welcome to SASPA!

The San Antonio School for the Performing Arts was founded in 1984 by Nancy Grossenbacher with two major goals…

Provide a quality foundation in the performing arts for those who desire the arts as a career and to instill and perpetuate a genuine appreciation of the arts in our youth, thereby nurturing the artistic growth of San Antonio for future generations.

Now directed by Scott M. Conway the school has a faculty of professional teachers with a combined total experience of teaching and performance equal to over 500 years.
