DANCE CENTER

The Westport Weston Family YMCA Dance Center has been providing quality Ballet, Jazz, Modern, Hip Hop and Creative Children’s Classes for over 40 years. We have something for everyone, ages 3 months to adult. Performance classes that culminate in a June recital, as well as non-performance classes for those who simply love to move but are not ready for the big stage. Our education-based program is geared toward creating well-rounded dancers with strong technique, coordination and focus. We strive to engage students physically and intellectually while helping them have fun while learning.
