Seattle’s Premiere Dance Center
Drop-in classes for beginner through advanced students ages 12 and up
More than your typical dance studio, Westlake Dance Center fosters both personal and community growth, and works to form lasting relationships with and between students.
Who We Are —
Westlake Dance Center opened in August of 1993 with the dream of offering a new variety and style to Seattle dancers. We have classes in jazz, hip-hop, ballet, lyrical, and more. We have classes for beginners through advanced students every day of the week in a friendly, supportive atmosphere where dancers can be challenged and encouraged to dance to their full potential.
Westlake Dance Center is predominately an adult age studio. We have junior high age through mature adults. Minimum age 12 years old.
Plans & Prices
Jazz classes explore traditional, Broadway, funky or contemporary styles in a fun, energetic atmosphere. Classes explore both progressions across the floor and straight to a combination which chains movement in a longer sequence. Jazz uses full body movements that incorporate turns and leaps.
Hip hop refers to street dance styles primarily performed to hip-hop music that have evolved as part of hip-hop culture. Styles include breaking, locking, popping, and more. Hip-hop uses smaller isolated movements and possibly a “freestyle” (improvisational) component.
