Dance classes

Looking for jazz or hip-hop dance classes or ballet lessons for your child? Or maybe a fun new way to work out? West Chester Academy has a dance class for everyone, and classes are offered at all levels from preschool to adult.

Our positive and encouraging teachers are always mentoring the next generation to develop a lifelong love of the art of dance. Each class is based on a sound curriculum that is designed to provide students with the highest quality dance education possible. Our dancers are further taught important life skills as they progress: patience, diligence, poise, confidence, respect, the importance of giving back, and team work.

Performances are given at least twice a year, and sometimes more as opportunities arise in the community. Costumes and choreography are always age appropriate. The dance season follows an academy calendar with 48 weekly lessons/ performances year round.
