The Westport Weston Family YMCA Dance Center has been providing quality Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop and Creative Children’s Classes for children, teens, and adults for over 40 years. The school offers a full spectrum of programs for students ages 2 to adult and meets from September to June in two semesters, Fall and Winter/Spring.

Our education-based program is geared toward creating well rounded dancers with strong technique, coordination and focus.
