"A Step in the Right Direction!"


"Westlake School for the Performing Arts is proud to offer to the children of our community an opportunity to participate in the training, the competition events, and the performing programs of WSPA.  This is not just another dance school, it is an institution where talents are discovered, skills are honed, dancers are bred, and where people come together with a common goal - to be our best, to share our best, and to give our best."

SAVE WSPA!  - In WSPA's 25th year of providing Daly City a center for performing arts and a place where children from all over the San Francisco Bay Area come to find their talent and confidence, we are being displaced. The City Manager of Daly City is proposing to sell the property in which our school is located with no intention or current plans to find an alternate location for WSPA. 

We need your support to make sure Daly City does not displace our school! 

  • Please sign the SAVE WSPA Online Petition at change.org.  If you can, add a testimonial as to why you think WSPA is important and why we should not be displaced.
  • Email, call, and write a letter directly addressed to the City Manager and the Mayor.
  • You can also send any testimonials (these can be written or video) to us directly at wspa1@sbcglobal.net.
  • Post images, videos, and statements on social media (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) and tag #savewspa #saveperformingarts #dalycity @wspadalycity
