WVDC Senior Spotlight - Kyra🌟

Congratulations to our talented senior team member Kyra, graduating from Santa Teresa High School. Kyra took her first dance class, as a tiny tot at just 18 months old and as she grew up, lyrical became her favorite style. Along her dance journey, Kyra's favorite memories include performing in the annual recital and closing each season with Nationals. Kyra kept a full dance schedule at WVDC, yet also filled her time as a member of the Santa Teresa Song Team . We are so excited to see Kyra began a new chapter this fall at the University of Northern Colorado where she will be major in Psychology.

CONGRATULATIONS to you Kyra, we love you and we are so PROUD of you🩵🩶🤍!!!

WVDC Senior Spotlight - Naomie🌟

Congratulations to our talented senior team member Naomie, graduating from Lynbrook High School. Naomie started dancing at 6 years old through Action Day Schools. What began as a fun hobby turned into a passion and she became part of the competitive team in the 7th grade, excelling in lyrical and contemporary. One of Naomie's fondest memories occurred in 2023 when her small group "Hometown Glory" won their category at Nationals. Naomie recalls it was a full circle moment to celebrate with her teammates that she loves so much! Naomie's energy extended far beyond the dance floor, as she was on the executive editorial committee of an online French magazine, a member of the French Honors Society and volunteer for various local organizations. We are thrilled to see Naomie launch into her next chapter post graduation and look forward to witnessing her bright future!.

CONGRATULATIONS to you Naomie, we love you and we are so PROUD of you🩵🩶🤍!!!

WVDC Senior Spotlight - Courtney🌟

Congratulations to our amazing senior team member Courtney, graduating from Valley Christian High School. Courtney took her first dance classes, hip hop & tap, as a first grader. After one year, she stepped away from dance, only to return to the art form in the 6th grade when she began to take a dance class at school. Courtney joined the competitive team at WVDC in the 8th grade, where lyrical/contemporary became her favorite styles. However, an upbeat jazz sparks joy as well! Along her dance journey, Courtney's favorite memories include Energy Nationals in San Diego and Ms. Ali's jazz technique class that would include blaring music while she and her classmates would sing as they traveled across the floor! While dancing for WVDC keeps Courtney quite busy, she is also a part of the National Honors Society as well as a Conservatory Honors Artist at VCHS. We are so excited to see Courtney began a new chapter this fall at Grand Canyon University in Arizona where she will be major in Communications.

CONGRATULATIONS to you Courtney, we love you and we are so PROUD of you🩵🩶🤍!!!

Our Story

The year was 1975 and Action Day Primary Plus was a daycare that was expanding rapidly as a result of the amount of mothers entering the workforce. Because the facility wanted to offer activities to children that all stay-at-home parents can provide their kids, the dance program was created, and our first dance class was held on April 5, 1976 in a small classroom at the preschool’s location on Moorpark Avenue, San Jose.

The new dance program, entitled Action Day Dance Academy, became hugely successful and studios were opened at each of the daycare’s 11 locations. The program offered professional studio classes, all of which were conveniently located at their respective schools. By the late 1990s, the studio had over 800 students, and we were proud to produce a yearly production-style recital at downtown San Jose’s Center for the Performing Arts (CPA) theater. Between 1976 and 2009, Action Day Dance Academy saw over 15,000 pairs of dancing feet come through its studios, and we are proud to have many alumni that have continued to dance through college, some even going on to perform professionally.

📷

In 2009, we realized the demand for performance opportunities for the dancers. Our students wanted to feel part of a team and felt there was nothing available to them beyond sports teams. To address this, in September of that year the West Valley Dance Cats group was created for dancers craving additional performance opportunities and competitive dance experiences. Our first team included 20 dancers from the fourth to eighth grade. The first season was an exciting one and included a trip to Disneyland in which our students took part in the holiday parade down Main Street USA, as well as a successful competition routine that received various awards and accolades.
