Scientists argue that children are our future, which is why most children are sealed in time capsules with a flashlight and a stack of magazines. Give a child something he or she will really dig with today's deal: for $25, you get a family membership and $75 worth of classes and more at Westside Dance & Gymnastics Academy in Tigard (a $100 value).
The Westside Dance & Gymnastics Academy provides a safe, creative, and positive space for children to challenge themselves, develop physical fitness and self-discipline, and work out more than 90% of their wiggles. A family membership (one time fee of $25) allows you to register any family member for any of the myriad classes and programs offered at Westside. Dance classes are available for toddlers, adults, and all movers and shakers in between (1–2 hours a week; $60–$120 a month). Enroll budding Baryshnikovs in toddler ballet or preteen movebusters in hip-hop, and view the ensuing rhythms at the annual dance recital. Westside offers gymnastics classes tailored to boys and girls of all flexibility and experience levels in a 12,000-square-foot gym filled with USA Gymnastics–certified equipment (1–2 hours a week; $63–$126 a month). See the schedule for full dance and gymnastics class listings.
The dance school offers a bevy of additional services, including the weekly Parents' Night Out, which provides whippersnappers with fun-filled, supervised pursuits such as the foam pit and a zip line, leaving parents free to explore the trendier foam pits and zip lines out on the town Saturday evenings from 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. ($20 per child). For more long-term supervised stretching, Westside Academy keeps kids safe and occupied with an after-school care program and performing arts preschool.
Although reviews are still growing for Westside Dance & Gymnastics Academy, five Insider Pagers give it an average of five stars:
- This is a GREAT school. I can say that having gone to many schools, and I'm VERY pleased. At Westside, they teach you to do your best and the performance opprotunities are great. – Aparna P.
- I love that this place has hours and schedules seven days a week. They also have begginers [sic] and preschool classes that are great for the energetic toddler. Mine just wants to run all day and we found that a creative outlet like this was a great place to use up some of that energy. – Monica M.
