Academy Families and Members of our Community…

It has been brought to our attention that our landlords at 345 Post Road West have filed an “Application for Special Permit” to attempt to make this location eligible for a CT Medical Marijuana Dispensary. We were not aware of these intentions and we are working with our landlords to better understand their recent actions.

It is important for our dance community to know that Westport’s Academy of Dance is legally bound by a current lease that entitles us to remain at 345 Post Road West as we have done successfully for many years.

Our classes, performances, privacy and typical routines will not be disrupted or infringed upon in any way. The Academy is NOT closing… and we are not planning to move.

As always we thank you for your ongoing support and appreciate your willingness to share this message with other members of our community.

If you noticed a “For Sale” sign in front of 345 Post Rd. West, it is because our landlord has put the property on the market. It is important to note that regardless of whether or not the property changes ownership in the future, our day-to-day routine at The Academy will NOT change at all in the near future!
