Joffrey is coming back to Westside!

The Joffrey Ballet will be holding their auditions at Westside Dance Academy again this year. it will be on Saturday, January 16. Registration will be from 1:00-2:00. Ballet will be from 2:00-3:30 and 3:30-5:00. Jazz audition will be 5:30-7:00.

We had a number of students take advantage of the opportunities that this audition opened up for them. We have students go to New York City for Musical Theater/Ballet, Denver for Ballet/ Jazz and Dallas for Ballet/Jazz. The growth and excitement that the students brought back after this phenomenal experience was seen by our Westside Dance Academy and fellow students.

Register on line through the Joffrey's website.


A couple of our dancers recently won scholarships at conventions they attended. These scholarships can be used to attend the same convention next year.

  • Anna Bauer - Titans (11/8)

  • Ella Mead - Celebrity (11/8)

We are so proud of you!

Production Sleepover!

December 5th and January 23rd @ 6:00pm

We will be having a production sleepover! This will help in getting the production finalized, and clean up any needed choreography, add on and fixing transitions. Dancers are to bring ( PJ's, Sleeping bags, Dance clothes or any other sleeping gear needed for the night ). Dancers can also bring treats to share with the team, if they like. Please make sure your Son or Daughter has had dinner before coming or if they eat later, they can bring a sack dinner if they want. If we need to we can always order pizza, if they get really hungry again in the night. Mr. Jeff will be chaperoning the event and staying the night with your dancers.

So Parents go out for a date night ! ;-)
