#SaveWSPA: Westlake School for the Performing Arts Needs Help
September 22, 2016

Westlake School for the Performing Arts needs your help! The bustling Daly City, California home to nearly a 1,000 students—in dance and vocal training—just learned that it may be forced out of its current location if the city sells the property. Currently, Daly City has no plans to find another location for WSPA.

We covered this Bay Area ballet powerhouse in our December 2013 issue, getting a glimpse into its six beautiful studios and a closer look at Malu Rivera-Peoples’ teaching philosophy. The school has taken honors at events like the Youth America Grand Prix, where it’s won the “Outstanding School” award several times, and the New York City Dance Alliance Nationals.
