"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."
