OUR FAMED HISTORY

Some of the most incredible and widely-renowned dance legends have trained and performed within these magnificent walls, making the Westmor iconic in the world of dance. However, just how famous does the Westmor’s history get? Hollywood famous.


Before the Westmor was “the Westmor” it was known as the Ernest Belcher Dance Studio in the 1930s. Belcher was a ballet dancer and choreographer who studied ballet in London (however, ballet was not his only style of dance). Belcher coached well-known Hollywood Greats, such as Fred Astaire, Maria Tallchief, Shirley Temple, Cyd Charisse, and many more. Belcher also worked for Walt Disney Studios and his daughter, Marg, was the model for the original Snow White! His daughter grew up in this studio and Shirley Temple actually received her 3rd grade ballet certification within these walls as well. 


The history of the Westmor Ballroom started with many Hollywood legends, continued to build with Ballroom Dancing legends, and now proceeds with YOU, our valued Westmor community member.
