Turning athletes into artists.
Thank you for your interest in West Michigan Dance Center of Portage, Michigan. We know that starting a new program can be a tough decision for a dancer, but we assure you that WMDC specializes in dance education and the overall well-being of your child. Our focus is on the art of dance and the development of strong technique and performance skills for each individual dancer.
We offer small classes that are presented in a creative fashion to keep our dancers focused, inspired, and engaged. We provide each student with personal attention in a safe and productive atmosphere, which helps to promote the growth and development of each dancer’s individual style. We also stress the development of communication and life skills that will benefit the dancers beyond the world of dance, and help them to exceed.
WMDC was established in 2008 & is committed to quality, originality in choreography and strong technique, all while maintaining a positive atmosphere. We provide top of the line instruction for beginners through advanced dancers in ballet, pointe, lyrical/contemporary, tap, jazz, acro, and hip-hop. We also offer recreation classes, as well as company classes, and with these we have an annual recital for our dancers to perform in the spring of each year.
Our mission at West Michigan Dance Center is to instill a love and passion for dance within each and every one of our dancers, while also inspiring self-confidence, discipline, and life skills that will help not just in dance, but in every day life. We care deeply about the well-being of our dancers, and try to take an individualized approach for each dancer, as every child has different needs and goals, and it is important to us that we give each dancer what they need to be successful. We will develop well-prepared dancers, whether they choose to pursue dance professionally, attend college for dance, or just want dance to be a part of their lives but not pursue it (once a dancer, always a dancer.) It is clear that the skills learned in dance create success in all aspects of life, and our goal is not to just develop a well-rounded dancer, but to develop an even more well-rounded human being in each and every one of our students.
