The Western Ballet School


The ballet school is located right in the centre of the city, in the Casino de Mayaguez building, on the corner of the Plaza Colon.

The school is the brainchild of Nana Badrena, who left Puerto Rico many years ago, always intending to return. It opened in the autumn of 2005 with dancers from Mumy Badrena's studio and has grown rapidly. There are now over one hundred and forty dancers, taking classes at all levels, up to pre-professional, in classical ballet, modern and jazz dance, and also three adult ballet classes.
